    Anyone experience anything weird after repasting with liquid metal? Last night my computer BSOD out of nowhere, upon investigation it was something with a memory issue but there is no indication that it could be possible as I swap different ram, also my computer did a weird thing where the HDMI audio and the internal speakers where defaulting on their own rapidly which I had to reboot in order to fix the problem, all of this little glitches happened after LM, wondering if someone has had a similar issue?

    If you got any of it over electrical components, I'm amazed that the machine even boots to begin with.

    Is the repaste the only thing you did? You mentioned new RAM and I'm wondering if you also changed the ram during the repaste.

    I should have been a little more specific, the glitches happened only 1 day and it has not done it since then, I did put the electrical tape around the die's as mentioned on the guide and I did not swap any components during this time, I wanted to know what people's temperatures where here, Im wondering if its just glitches of W10 more than anything
