Does liquid metal corrode solder and the resistor?
post #162 of 299
Just a few impressions of my shunt modded 1080Ti FE on a EK waterblock. I used the Conductonaut between DIE and waterblock too. Insulation is nail polish and black heat resistant silicone.

Damn, looking good. What temps are you getting on the GPU when OC?

Sorry, i have no results yet. just finished the card two hours ago. i am rebuilding my whole rig and still have a lot of work on the waterloop. i will come back here with results in ca. 10 days.

Consider running liquid metal. It's not nearly as scary as people make it out to be. Unless you have shaky hands from Parkinson's or similar ofcorse.

Just flood the area around the GPU die with higher temp liquid tape and go to town. This will drastically lower your temps as it's nearly as good as solder in terms of thermal transfer and will drop your temps significantly.

When you're done with the card, just wipe it off carefully and peel off the tape.

He're how my old 1080 and Titan X Maxwell before it cleaned up after I was done with em. You can literally flood the area surrounding the socket with liquid electrical tape to ward off shorts and peel it off when done. Same with the Shunt mod frankly.

One can always practice on old useless hardware first if scurrd....




Good example on using liquid electrical tape.

nice and clean! thumb.gif can the silicon be easily removed? i wanted to do the gpu also with the liquid metal but wasnt sure how much to apply curious to see your results when done. good job

It seems that liquid electrical tape is better and easier to remove than silicone and especially paint.

KraxKill used it on 3 cards already and he says he just peels it off.

Thanks!

I am not planning to remove it again, so that was not a question i asked myself. I think it would be possible, but with some effort. Personally I would not try to remove it, because there is a small chance to damage the small parts under it.

I will not rma this card and when i sell it sometime, i sell it like this. So it is ok for me, that nail polish and silicon cant be removed easily. But if it is important for you to have the possibility to remove it, maybe you should watch out for an other isolator.

Cheers,
Dun

btw: what is the right term, insulator or isolator? or are both terms ok in this context?

Insulator. An isolator is actually a type of switch biggrin.gif
