How to Insulate X79 motherboard - Page 2

Wow, That's a great tutorial with nice pictures thumb.gif
So on the eraser you just apply neoprene foam with the pot right? Does the eraser becomes hard at low temperature and give poor contact with the mobo?

Rep for you Sin and everyone!!

One thing I recommend on top of Sin's guide is to make the LET thick. Apply three or four coats (letting it dry between). The thicker it is, the easier it is to peel off.

Yea make it thick, i was in a rush so I didn't make it that thick. I made it thick however around the VRM area just because. I think bassplayer told me, make it thick enough so youcan't see the board's PCB color through it.

the insulation like sin's doesnt have to be quite as thorough, the temps wont get super cold so there wont be a ton of condensation.

same even goes for ln2 on these chips.....can get away with little insulation due to the high cold bugs and such

Thank everyone for your input. cheers.gif
I have coated two layers of liquid electrical tape, and then eraser and neoprene foam and some more LET to seal off the cracks.
The CPU bracket is also removed, and the cpu is hold down by the TEC block. Everything has been working fine for a few hours now biggrin.gif
Temperature is good ( I have two 50mm TEC at 17V)

Is that LET easy to get of the board again?

I personally prefere to use clear plastic paint for all my bench hardware. In in theory, it could run under water if it is been painted properly with it. Not that i have tried it biggrin.gif

And the best thing about it is that you can remove it again with acetone and sell the the hardware and get some new stuff.

Yes, LET can be peeled off once dried. It may get tricky in some tight space like between two capacitors.

Wouldn't acetone melt the platics parts? Melted a keyboard last night, so I'm wary of acetone and any plastic other than acetal tongue.gif

depends on the types of plastic.

yes it does eat most plastics though. But not most of the ones used on mobos.
