OK this all started when using the TEC, it would run fine for a week or so and all of a sudden it began re-sarting at the end of each WU. (no load gets around 10C maybe 25-30 below ambient) I put this down to the cold bug which can be apparent with my 144 opty. The mobo is a DFI LP NF4 SLI-D. Now after taking all of the TEC and water cooling off and have even given it a clean-out with Electronic Cleaner it wont detect the cpu. The socket is dry and clean as if was brand new. Out of every 10 re-sets it will fire up but then crash in bios after a minute or two. I have tried 2 other cpu's in there but no different. A PSU was tried but no go. RAM switched but still no. Tried a different BIOS chip but no different. There was condensation but am thinking it was OK for it was prepped properly. Has anybody got any ideas as to what could be happening. Has the little condensation killed the mobo maybe? 4 red lights is not good.
