Hey guys, just wanted to know the best option for a trace repair on this mobo. Sent it in to Asus, who apparently don't like trace damage much. Fortunately they sent me a picture for me to share with you all (Haven't gotten it back yet.)

448

I'm thinking either get some thin copper strips (maybe devour a USB cable?) and x-acto out a path, and solder them in and cover up with nail polish/electrical tape
OR
Glorified pencil mod.


Thoughts?

I think its near to impossible to fix that. As it is scratched into the mobo.

It doesn't look like a deep scratch though, so as long as it doesn't hit any of the wires inside the mobo I think I should be fine.

(And as an aside, does covering the back of my mobo in some kind of electrical tape, or maybe something with a residue that deals better with higher temperatures sound like a good idea)
