Default Motherboard

Hey Guys,
As you all know i bought a P5B-Deluxe motherboard on my trip in the US . When i got home i installed and i got everything to work , 2 days later the board crapped out on me. Last week i sent to ASUS and they just emailed me saying they sent my product to my shipping address. I'm really happy, when i get it ill start over clocking my CPU again. I don't think my OC killed it because i only got to 2.0 and raised the voltage by one notch , maybe it was the voltage. I have no clue but im getting a new one. Will i need to re apply paste on the CPU like rub it all of and reapply ?

Thanks,
Preacher

You'll have to reapply TIM just like if you were building the machine the first time. I highly doubt overclocking burned the board. It was probably just defective from the get go.
