So I overspent on applying my paste due to a distraction.

Decided I was on too short a timeframe (decided to repaste right before work!!) to fix it.

Put everything back together.

No visual output at all.

Upon getting back I’ve obviously realised too much paste then seen it’s in the pins and into the socket.

Wut do now??

The mobo is an Asrock FM2A75DGS. Could simply get a replacemt and another CPU (very lazy and fed up now).

Will add picture in a few hours when I can face it again.

I didn’t get any rubbing alcohol. Apparently the ‘oil capital of europe’ has No stock of anything outside of ‘normal people’ needs. How very vanilla.

I used some screen wipes and the toothbrush and it worked. Happy days!
