Default Should i RMA my mobo?

Hi guys. In relation to my other topic "Hard drive defected?" i have come to think it could be the mobo. I have contacted ASUS and explained the problem and they seem to think it is a faulty board. Just dont know what else to do.... but it means taking all the parts out including CPU which i am confused about. Will i have to apply more paste to it on the next board?

Yes, you will have to apply it again on your next board

Yes, you will have to re-apply the thermal paste if you RMA the motherboard. Do not re-use any of the old thermal paste.
