Material to fill in L1 pits, Opinion needed ASAP!!

Hi all,

I am going to be unlocking my second rig XP system. It is an XP 1500+ on an Epox 8KHA+ motherboard. My primary system XP was unlocked using superglue(crazy glue) but I did not think this was the best material to fill in the pits. I have been doing some reading of late and I reckon I'll fill in my second CPU L1 pits with nail varnish. However is this material conductive???? Secondly has anyone tried this method of covering the pits??? Please reply ASAP since I will be unlocking my chip later thus evening. Thanks for your help!!!

Paul.K

Just after completing the unlocking process thus evening. It seemed a lot easier filling in the pits with Tip Ex and joining the L1 bridges with conductive ink.

Problem with bondo and super glue is they are both rather final don't you think? Now I haven't tried this but I hear regular wall spackle works and you can clean it out if ya muck up. Anyone know about that?

Ah . . . . Silicone Caulk ??? Or hows-about fiber glass resin ?? And then there is wood putty. Oh, and lets not forget rubber cement.

I wonder if paraffin wax would work ???

I don't think its silicone based though...I'll have to check at the store but even silicoce caulk would work so long as it fills but doesn't bond permanently.

I did the HighSpeedPC review and his "white stuff", whatever it is, cleans up real easily and does do the job. That's the idea I was getting at...something a little less permanent than bondo or glues but still fills the pits and is nonconductive.

Heck we've all heard of crayons being used right? What are they made of? That's gotta be close to your parafin wax.

I believe the gap filler in the HighspeedPC kit is Heat sink grease from here, it's what I used and works great.

I've got the 5oz tube, also have some of the Silver Conductive grease left, If you need some just LMK

Ooooh, ooooh! I know what LMK means now, LOL. All thanks to Dan's helpful acronym definition list, LOL.
