If you watch der8auer's YouTube video he makes a mess when wiping the CLU off the resistor and you can see the CLU smear all over the card. Then he cleans it all up with a few wipes of an acetone dipped towel. Good as new. The only thing you have to care about is not spilling the CLU onto the GPU while it has power, so basically not putting so much on that it could drip on or whatever once it gets installed back into your tower. If you have a vertical setup on the GPU, like when running on a test bench so the board is flat and the GPU stands up, then you want to use a VERY small amount of CLU, as thick as you normally use when spreading on an IHS of die.
That is good to know, thanks!
I've never played with CLU, so I don't know how viscous to expect it to be. It has "liquid" in its name, which is what made me uncomfortable
Is this pretty stable over time, or do the conductive properties change as it dries?
