Why not 'top up' your order with some rechargeable batteries - they always come in handy?

Ah it's OK I have some now, and a new motherboard.

3rd time lucky I hope...

Can I just confirm with the grease I should

1) Put it in the cpu hole and fill it up

2) cover the rear of the motherboard

This wont affect anything I hope?

Many thanks

Chris

Yep,squirt it through the pin-holes first (force it in with an old credit card or similar), then fill up the socket totally and level off with credit card.Clean any excess around socket with plain cotton bud.Personally i dont put grease on the back,as i'm convinced the problems start in the socket somewhere.I was gonna do a guide for this stuff,.....but then i got high (yeah,sing it),na seriously will do a guide soon.Good luck.

Right, on my 3rd board now. I did what you said but I put DC4 everywhere

It's in the socket, the pins, around the socket and on the back. I'm not taking any chances this time.

I really hope it works. If it doesnt then back to watercooling for me.

Cheers

Vaseline works superb as a Dielectric / Luberex / DC4 alternative... s'all I use these days, and SealingString can be purchased from the baths & showers section at B&Q.

If you've put DC4 anywhere where sealing string normally sticks, then clean it all off or (obviously) your sealing string won't stick and therefore won't seal, the CPU will sweat, and you'll be right back to square one. Keep all grease at least 3mm away from sealing string on the board as it "settles", and avoid handling sealing string with greasy fingers or you'll ruin however much you handle...

its dielectric grease used for condensation proofing electrical contacts, i beleave on farnell they give examples such as air craft and specific operating temperature ranges.

Nventiv didnt ship it with the kit i assume because they thought it wasnt needed, and/or wasnt deemed necersarry to the failure rate of excluding its use compared to the cost of shipping it with each unit, that or they misssed it

But this equipment is profession kinda so i guess a level of knowledge might have been assumed, even though its sold in a nice package.

I finally got some luberex today (originally ordered from farnell canceled due to there lack of abillity) got it from over-clock.co.uk they have DC4 as well.

the box says it is :-

-----------

Luberex

The modern white lubricant.

Calcium stearate base grease.

Ideal all purpose lubricant.

Excellen dielectric properties.

Superior calcium stearate base grease compound for general use in industry, the shop or at home. Provides excellent lubrication for bearings, appliances, handtools, bycicles, fishing reels,and automotive uses, Excellent Dielectric propoeties make luberex ideal for all types of electrical contacts.

-------

when it comes to any form of condensation related problem from pelts to um well prommies and vapo's every post i have read said get the grease and every thing will be good.
