well now im real mad and fking clueless. Bought some ram and still it dosen't boot! What now ? The mobo the CPU ? I just hooked out my CPU to looks for bent pins and stuff. Everything seemed fine. Except that the CPU had a small spot on the pin side. Thsi spot was caused by some thermal compound. In real small quantity. Like real small... When i noticed that, a few weeks earlier, i cleaned it off and hooked it back. And it worked just fine. Now i just realized that it could be the problem... So, i re-cleaned it off but this time with some Alcohol. Now i have a spot that shine... Did i do wrong ? Was cleaning the under of a CPU with alcohol, actually it's with the number 1 of the artic clean set, was wrong ?

Im just tired now... WHat you guys think ?
