I shower with my boards :)

DON'T forget to remove the battery and if the sinks use thermal pads, u should prolly remove the sinks so the pads don't get soaked and leak liquid at the rma site.

If you have a clothes dryer that has a shoe rack drying accessory (rack that doesnt spin in the dryer), just lay the mobo down on the rack and set to medium heat for 30 minutes for 2 cycles.

Also, don't be a dunce like me and think you can gently brush the socket, no matter how gentle you are, pins get bent.

You know you're in need of this type of RMA when you can't even afford enough dishwashing soap :P

RMA? As far as I remember it was being prepared to be coated..... Coating > Vaseline

Denmark noxon says:

The board is still working fine, i know the guy. I have done the same a few times when the mobo got too messy, afterwards 1 hour in the oven at 70C then its like new again :) And i know alot other Danish guys who have done the same, none have killed a mobo on that account.

he has 0 points, and his team 32 points. What else did u expect, :p

Denmark Rosty says:

but now im sure im not gone get this board rma

TiN says:

I'm talking about balls of ICH, not battery covered by vaseline. From video motherboard left in water for long time, before you pull batt out. And water under BGA evaporates very slowly :)

United States Hondacity says:

i think he'll bake it in the oven next, to accelerate evaporation :D

Denmark Rosty says:

here is some gfx in the oven, could not find any pics of motherboards on my cam hehe

TaPaKaH says:

won't you wash all the SN off rendering RMA useless ?

K404 says:

I defrost GPUs + pots in the oven too :D

Denmark Rosty says:

yes thats nice to use the oven for that

Denmark Rosty says:

But i will say that i dont do the board ready for RMA, but ready for painting, i know it cant be RMA, i test some bios, and testing for coldbug on ln2, before i paint the board, so dont need the SN nr or anything ;) And i think the board runs great, very nice

United States Voidn says:

Lets see: ram and harddrive in the freezer. gpu's in the oven. mobo in the sink, dish washer, oven. what goes in the toaster? lol

Brazil Rbuass says:

I used to sell my boards after LN2 benchs with vaseline...
Looks like new hahaha
