Reaching The Contact Point

Note: If you can't figure out how to remove the chipset fan, just give up now and buy an SLI-D/SLI-DR. This is also a perfect opportunity to switch out the stock DFI chipset fan for the much better Evercool VC-RE chipset fan!

This is the thing that most people are probably talking about when they say it's not possible on newer boards, it's just a covering over two points that you need to connect.

Scratchy




I just used a craft knife to scratch over the epoxy in all directions, being careful to not hit the nearby surface mounted component (I guess a resistor)

Scratchy





...and after some more scratching and a little clean up with IPA (using cotton buds / q-tips), you can see the exposed contacts!

Little More Scratchy





Bridging The Gap

I went for the fine tip silver conductive pen as we have a choice of regular and fine where i work. I'm glad I went with the fine because the contacts are hard to see let alone join up with a pen!!!



I just slowly built up a little blob to ensure that a contact would be made and I wouldn't have to disassemble and re-do it.
