as for the grease in the socket, it makes no difference whether you use it while phase changing or for air cooling, it wont affect the performance of the processor.
Ok great. I will be using trichloroethane to clean the dielectric grease out of my socket when i go to sell it.

This I was planning on doing, i just wanted to clarify about the kneaded eraser mainly.

I would personal only use kneaded eraser for benching for short periods of time.
I used liquid tape neoprene 3 and 8 mil, coated the back of board only with spray
and electrical grease in socket for my 24/7 rig and its been going solid for 6months.
It all depends on your preferences and experiences just make sure its air tight whatever you do and depending on what head fitting you use don't over tight things as your mobo will bend like hell.
I will be running 24/7 with it for as long as it can handle the CPU's i throw at it, or until i decide to go colder
(or the cpus i throw at it are to hot
Like I said though, until i find the mobo I want to keep (most likely the gb 790fx ud5, and if I am not satisified with it's OC ability i will go msi gd70
) I would like to keep the mobo sell-able. If i do a SUPERB job of applying kneaded eraser, is it possible to be okay for at least 2-5 months? Say i get some condensation in a pocket eventually, will my board just short out, meaning i have to take it off dry it out, and then will i be good to go again? Speaking to NCspec through IM he told me a mobo is pretty tough to kill...
