Is this enough insulation for a safe DICE run?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So i just got back from my local Home Depot and spent $22 on these items.









The Closed Cell Foam is 1/2 " THICK and I'm planning on cutting it into 6 " - 12 " pieces and putting them under books for a day or so to flatten.

What else would you guys get to not screw stuff up on a DICE run?

You should grab some artist eraser to seal up the cpu when it's in the socket.  Also, never stick that Armaflex tape to anything unless you put down painter's tape first, otherwise you'll never get it off.

 

Here's a good example of LET used properly with eraser to seal in the CPU

Note that the eraser has been removed from the X58A-OC. I had eraser around the chip and metal there, too.

Should i take the heatsinks off while applying the liquid tape/ getting board insulated?

Should i put them back on? I think i am atleast for one or more runs to try out water cooling my 680 Classified and use the waterblock in the vrm heatsink.

Would the water freeze inn the waterblock since its so close to the cpu? would it even be lower temps than if i didnt watercool it?

The water in your loop won't freeze, so you don't have to worry about that.  Personally, I never take off the mobo heat sinks and my motherboards have always survived.

Pretty much just need to cover electrical contacts so nothing will short when it gets wet, looks pretty well covered.
I usually cover the caps underneath the socket, but I also put foam & the backplate over it anyway so don't think it's too important.

Yeah but from what I see, didn't he cover the little thing that "locks" the little arm for the CPU retention system? Maybe I'm mistaken since I haven't closely looked at a motherboard in a while. It's just a little something I was wondering about.
