you tried a cmos reset? not sure about the R3E but there should definitely be a jumper or switch on the board somewhere to reset it. You could also try pulling the battery overnight, and reseating the ram.

I'm sure somebody experienced with the rampage will chime in soon, but I'd try my suggestions in the mean time.

On a side note would it kill you to use paragraphs? No offence intended mate but it'd make it a lot easier for you to get your points across.

Sorry about the paragraphs I'm on my iPhone so Its harder to type. Where would the reset switches be? And how in the world do you clean on dried thermal paste on a heatsink. I also used the noctua thermal compound for the north bridge heatsink, was a disaster, so I reapplied it and now it's got marks all over it The only thing I used to clean it is with mentholated spirits

Ah I didn't realise you were on a phone, fair play to ya.

Have a look in the manual for the cmos reset location, there should be a troubleshooting section at the back, and an overview of the board at the front.

As for cleaning off thermal paste, I'd recommend Isopropyl alcohol (sold as CD cleaner) or lighter fluid. Methylated spirits like you've tried would probably work as well but they may leave a blue residue. Scraping off what you can with plastic (an old credit card works well, or a CD will do in a pinch) will go a long way before it's time to break out the solvents. Use cotton wool or tissue paper to clean up as the solvents will dissolve the paste.

Edit: for really stubborn stuff like glue residue I've used petrol, but I really wouldn't reccomend it for obvious (explosive) reasons. Just take your time and you should be able to get everything cleaned up.

I was there too once mate albeit not with such a mental rig..You really did dive in at the deep end with this.

Noctua paste should be fine on the northbridge, as long as the contact is good any paste should work on a NB.
