    So for 6 months or so I have been bummed out. Got greedy, put conductonaut on cpu and gpu. Tried everything to fix it to no avail. Sent it in to a repair place still unable to fix it. I tried a few times and gave up a few times.

    Last night I turned my laptop upside down, took an electirc toothbrush that rotates like 3 different ways ad vibrates at the same time.

    just ran it over the entire laptop, all vrms, everything, said screw it is broke anyway.

    well 15 hours of benchmarks later she is still running great. 100hz IPS 17.3" gsync, clevo p670hs-g, 7820hk stock, and gtx 1070 stock. games are running great, benches, everything, screen is gorgeous temps are great (smothered everything in noctua paste before i closed it back up, including big dabs of it on the vrm sinks)

    I AM A KING AMONGST MERE MEN!!!!!

    I am never using conductonaut or any conductive material again as long as I live.

    Nothing else to share I am afraid, I removed the heatsink, i took a toothbrush to that as well! on both sides!

    and i put the toothbursh on the fans too, no idea why, just was trying to defeat this major loss with my madness, hehehehe

    but yeah, let gravity do its think as you vibrate and rotate brush the heck out of all the parts on it (I also removed all sticky stuff as there was some little tiny dots of conductonaut on some of it, i used big globs of noctua paste instead as i had no replacement pads laying around... and just toothbrush everywhere over vrms, gpu itself... also the area around the gpu has that silver mesh stuff laying down, i ripped that up and brushed under all there, etc. :) cant believe it worked.

    It is only a material item, I had already moved on and accepted it as a loss. I do thank God, for living and my health and my 8 year old niece, but it is nice that I get it back :)

    I thank God for allowing me to learn from my mistakes though, and a new one added to the list is Conductonaut, never ever again.

    Glad you're back, but what prep work did you do with conductonaut?
    This never should have happened provided you had proper prep work done.
    Conductonaut can NOT spill if you use compressible foam dams and super 33+ tape or nail polish insulation (around CPU/GPU smd components). it's completely impossible for it to go anywhere!
    Or did it squirt out of the tube and get on something? Was that it?

    I was trying to remove it and put regular paste on because the heatsinks were not making contact. The application itself went and fine, removing it was the hard part.
