Scratched back of mobo

Need help last night I put h70 water cooler on mobo and the back bracket scratched the back of the board so that the copper chanel is visible but not severed. What do I do.

  1. If the motherboard still works, thank your lucky stars and paint the back of the board with <some sort of nonconductive protectant; I'm sure that there are people here who know what to use>.

    If it doesn't work, hope that you can get away with RMAing it.
  2. The copper that you are seeing is part of one of the traces on the motherboard. Put a thin film of thermal compound (Artic Silver 5 or whatever you have) on the exposed portion of the trace in order to protect the copper from oxidizing.
