Question time for me.

Now i've never heard of this "Conformal Coating" before. Does is dry or some thing so it can be peeled off ?

Why use Conformal Coating and Silicone rubber Adhesive couldn't you just use Dielectric Grease everywhere ?

Is it possible to clean the Dielectric off the MBM so no one would know ?

well conformal coating is pretty much like glue and well when you place it and then you push neoprene on to it then creates a good barrier against air... conformal coating and silicone adhesive I believe make a better air tight bond then dielectric grease because the grease does not hold as strong as the conformal does... and yes it is possible to remove conformal maybe not make it look 100% like what it used to but if you want to RMA it would be possible and some companies take an RMA even with the dielectric and conformal on there

ya I was thinking about the same thing, for re-sale value of the board. Now AKAeric fell through on his part of the deal for the arctic spyder so now I'm sitting here with my neoprene, grease, conformal, 437w tech, liquild tape I bought off ebay... I got everything but the block and psu now . The only reason I bought all this stuff is because I got a block and psu for $200... now I'm screwed.

don't you want to coat the whole board with some sort of water resistant spray to protect the rest of the components form condensation? or is it not needed, since the neopreme (if installed corectly) should do the job. I think it would make sense, the only reason i can come up with on why you wouln't want to do it, would be that it could increase the temp of the mobo itself. but then again its always better ot be safe than sorry.

also how long can you let these system run for. I leave my system on for a day or two sometimes, would you be able to leave a Peltier/TEC cooled system on for a good 10-20Hours? or is this type of cooling primarily for gettin the best OC then shuting the system down?

excellent tutorial tho, very interesing to read. and i'd like to try it myself

you can do that the spray you are talking about is conformal coating just in a spray form I have personally only used it in the tube form and I think doing the whole board is ultra kill it will keep your whole mobo fine but it will raise temps and I just would not trust my self doing that because it is a delicate process if you get the spray in any of the sockets its useless now so I like the option where im more in control...

I think you can run a TEC system as long as you want I have ran my HTPC for over 2 days and it is on TEC and it has had a constant temp of -25C but this chip has not been OCed the HTPC was my trial run. you can do higher suicide runs with this but you just get an AWESOME OC with a TEC and I cant wait to start mine

thanks for the complements and if you have any questions just post here we are all always ready to help
