Hey OCC, long time no see. I've recently cleaned my computer and when i reapplied thermal paste i put a little bit to much and it spilled onto the motherboard socket. I started the computer but as soon as it turned on it turned right back off. I removed the CPU and noticed the thermal paste ( I use arctic silver 5 which supposedly doesn't conduct electricity). So i gently started to clean the paste with some isopropylic alcohol with the help of a toothbrush (dumb, I know- i guess i got high on isorpopylic vapours or i dunno) and of course i dented some pins. I tried to allign them back up but still nothing. My question is do you think this might have damaged my CPU as well? I am pretty sure the motherboard is done for and Gigabyte support isn't very helpful either.
