Kaftan Barlast Posted August 19, 2005 Share Posted August 19, 2005 Everything was going fine with the install of my new Zalman VF700 CU GFX cooler until I made a slight booboo Asus had put far too much therma grease on the GPU core so when i tried to remove it, some ended up on the tiny microconduits around the core. Ive sepnt 30min cleaning it with tops & Isopropanol but it seems impossible to get it completely 100% clean. (this is an older core but you can see the tiny conduit-thingies around the core itself) The grease is grey so i asume its silver based and commercial ones dont lead electricity but Im not sure what ASUS have been using, or if the conduits are even vulnerable in the first place. Dad the engineer says its fine but a friend of mine whos a fiddler says I shouldnt take any chances. What do you think? DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.
