You guys have been a big help so far so lets keep going.
I have a replacement mobo on the way P5N-E SLI.
1. What should I use to clean the old thermo paste off my proc? and the pins/connectors for my vid, sound card, ram, ect? what should I keep the proc in until the new board arrives.
2. besides the standoff screws is there anything I can put behind my mobo ( rubberblocks, washers ect ) to keep my board from flexing when installing ram?

I am sure I'll have more questions later.
