MacBook Air dead for the third time

Logic board removed from MacBook Air casing

My MacBook Air logic board has died again. This is the third time in four months and once again I got it back to life by baking the logic board in the oven. I upped the cooking time a bit since the second time I baked it, this time keeping it in the kitchen oven for 8:00 minutes in 188 ℃. I was out of cooling paste (for the CPUs) so a tried to scrape off as much as possible from the CPUs and put it on the bottom side of the heat-plate. After the visit to the oven and a cooling period of perhaps a quarter of an hour the computer is once again in working order.
