all i'm saying is that this is not a true waterproof board, they are falsely advertizing it.

for water cooling loops people are afraid of always breaking.

So what would happen if you coated your motherboard in ultra ever dry? Would this be the result or is this different?

Because it doesn't seem like this is as far fetched as some people are making it out to be, not talking about submersion in water. Especially since don't all motherboards have some minor forms of protection anyways? I spilt coolant on my motherboard the other day and it's fine.

yea LN2 overclockers do this already, this just makes it easier for them and perhaps would allow them to RMA it if it dies and they don't get rejected b/c of their own coating.

Yeah, I don't understand what the issue is. Anyone who's looked at sub-ambient cooling should understand what's going on here.

It's a plastic coating over all the solder joints on the board. The pins and other connectors are not covered. If you wanted to waterproof them, you'd fill them with dielectric grease. If you wanted to sub-ambient, you'd still need to insulate to prevent condensation, but this at least removes the step of putting a coating on the board.

Sub-ambient is what the industry is going to move to after water cooling is played out.

Why not quit speculating and see what this stuff really is/does?
I'd be more than happy to volunteer (somebody else) to try it out!

Yeah! It makes the MB more resilient , so what? One bit of water on another component and presto MB can get ....... biggrin.gif

Do the Jumpers on the motherboard have the power to short out in water?

As in can the electricity jump that distance through water, from the power output that those pins provide?

*edit* and if so, could you avoid that happening by using colder, less conductive water?
