    Put some masking tape around the screw to protect the electronics from metal particles and cut a slot on it using a dremel. Easy fix.

    situation update ...

    *
    with the screw screwed and very tight to the motherboard, I went to sleep very upset!

    I woke up today at 5am and accepted the fact that I had to make a slot in the screw that was previously phillips.

    and that's what I did, I took 2h and 40minutes with a sharp knife scraping the mini screw until I made a slit in it ..

    Before I isolated the area as much as I could with electrical tape so as not to fall metal scraps and close short (i think that is what i meant to say)...

    In the end everything worked out pretty well, I got ma brand new laptop again, I did stress test on it and I get 26º less, is now past 70º, which before went to 96º .... BACK TO PLAY BOIS!

    PS, i used grizzly thermal paste kryonaut

    ty guys and ASUS PLEASE STOP USING ****TY SCREWS!

    LOL you did it a knife? Damn good job man! I don't think I could do it. Patience is definitely a virtue! Good to know you're back in business.
