[HWBOT]A-Style: Waterproof by Conformal Coating Live Demo - Page 2

post #11 of 60
I have a refrigeration (built for extreme water cooling users) system from years ago that I want to use with this coating. This unit will freeze subzero antifreeze.



I used this system on an old BP6 dual socket AMD rig for about a day. Thats it:)

So no dunking the mobo into refrigerated water?

I know it also doesn't help when the color of the motherboard is yellow

This will be nice for sub-zero benching. Don't have to worry about going full out with the insulation

Is it just me or is there grease on the VRMs? There is a much thicker coat on the MOSFETs for the VRM than on the rest of the board(including MOSFETs for the VRm under the memory DIMMs), and it isn't evenly distributed coating either. Sorry to be a hater but I will try one out when they launch, i mean they got the liquid running over bare leads like the molex on the bottom and the fan headers and no short? really? Because if they don't short then either the liquid is non conductive or they are coated, coating the connectors make no sense.

cool if it works i am sure other manufacturers will use it.

there is no room for haters ..if you like the idea that's one thing but I'm pretty sure you can neat-pic and find something that you don't like on any mobo,as for copying the idea I'm pretty sure GB will the first one ..wink.gif

no that isn't the issue. I am not sure how much it would be worth it or even legit and I am trying to gauge it.

I mean here are a few things we don't know: How much will see need to insulate the open connectors like fan headers, DIMMs, PCI-E slots, molex?
What if this isn't what we think and certain components aren't insulated all the way, or if it hurts the component lifespan on the motherboard from the extra heat?
What about hot and cold cycles? How will this affect it for Ln2 cooling? and multiple cycles of LN2.
Also how will they offer warranty?

If its a great thing, it works really well and it doesn't cost me that much more and gives me warranty then its great. I would love to have it.
But if its another gimmick then forget it, they have done stuff like this before. I mean for one here is something, what if its just some coating done to 1mm, and you still need to insulate anything over that such as the majority of chips? What if it is just the coating of the PCB itself to make it more water proof?

So no I don't have to make up my mind from these "tests", I am not being a hater either, I am just trying to show what I see in the video and how my thinking process goes about.

That is the last i will say about it. I am sure asus would be the first, they know everything about asrock, why aren't they doing it?

Anyways we will see soon enough.
