How to stop phase change from condensating? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
The Vaseline does not go bad...at least not in the several months I have used mine...but it does get runny when hot. I think you will find dielectric grease will do exactly the same.

you don't want to use phase for gpu..unless benching.

too much work involved, sealing is a nightmare.

Just stay with the CPU, and get watercooling or even a chiller for other components.

Phase on a GPU would require a separate phase unit and custom heads. If you ever updated your GPU, chances are the new would have different cooling requirements and you would need another new head. Then the fact of filling your phase each time.

I think he was talking more about a water chiller for the cpu and gpu. Not totally sure about that.

If it is a water chiller then it is very easy to cool both unlike trying to phase both of them. You could jsut use a standard gpu block (preferably all metal) and just make sure you insulate it properly.

I took Madmax22's advice a while back and purchased a can of this stuff from Autozone. I works great and application is super easy. It comes in a preasurized can and with a nice applicator. Reminds me of cheez-wiz .

CRC Technical Grade Di-Electric Grease (costs ~$8 as autozone I think)

That is very pro

I use a children's cough syrup syringe and white petrolatum...messy yet effective.

Pack the petrolatum (Vaseline) into the opened syringe then squirt it into the socket and all around the socket. Make a close cel foam collar for the phase head if it is without a collar and make sure it is compliant enough to fit over all the caps and other components populating the mobo around the socket. The Vaseline will make a vapor barrier between the foam and the mobo...

It cleans off with CRC electrical contact cleaner.

CRC FTW

What about sealing the board with a polyurethane clear coat.
I have seen it made to use on plastic models so it does not harm them.
would that not be a good idea to seal the mother board from moisture.
my new system.
