There are different oppinions on using nail polish as an isolator. But many people use it succesfully. I think it is ok, although there might be more professional materials. Here is what i found out on the topic of heat resistance:

Just did the liquid metal shunt mod on my MSI Gaming X
Consumption in TimeSpy GT1 with 2088@1.062v 338w max

Consumption after the mod in TimeSpy GT1 with 2088@1.062v 159w max

Will retest soon 2114/12000 on stock air cooler seems possible now:D

We can apply Block to Card without black oil?

Dont worry, you dont need it if you use normal thermal paste which is non-conductive.
I just put the black nail polish on the small parts as an isolator because i use liquid metal as a thermal paste.

I got some nail hardener, chucked it on an old Core2D package and put a 150 degree celsius heatgun to it, didn't melt or anything. TLDR, as long as it is not mechanically disturbed it should be OK. I could upload photos of that particular nail hardener if u want lol.

Added bonus, this is super ez to remove in case of warranty, just use any form of nail polish remover and ur golden.

BTW: on your die? What order did you apply the nail polish and silicon? And could you post a link to the particular silicon you used? Did it already have an applicator that allowed that nice bead or did you somehow otherwise apply the silicon?

Thanks for any info! Want to do my new 1080 ti Seahawk with Conductonaut some day and would like to replicate your process ...

Best,
joel

Not sure why the liquid electrical tape didn't work for you another user got it on really nice for 4 of his cards.

But if I was you, I would go to the Auto store and get some black rtv gasket maker.

Black silicone is what is used to seal the lid on cpus.

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....




Best example of using liquid electrical tape. So if you have to RMA, just peel it off.

So I just got this card (the EVGA one) it did not come with any disc, so I just installed the drivers manually which overclocking software should I use? first steps??

I downloaded the evga software but it asked for my sn, i put it in but the software seems kind of crappy. I hear the MSI afterburner is nice, do I need a sn for that one?

so whats this shunt mod I see about? risky?
