*Tnx for the tips on the conformal..I gotta pick up some liquid tape still..what would be the best option for clean up later..I plan on selling this whole lot off, after some hard runs on the DICE..so want everything to stay 'so fresh and so clean'.
**Uploading pics ..now.
Nice start..Thanks for the pic's!!!
The cold will let you use less v-core to reach the same clocks to. You might hit higher then 4.5..
If you want to sell it later on you can do a minimal proof on it, with DI you don't really have to proof it as much as if you were running a TEC 24/7, TEC temp's just spike up and down constantly and that causes a lot of condensation.
Some guys don't even grease the socket with DI, if your just going to bench it for a day or so at a time you might be able to get away without it, maybe, always take your chip out and blow the socket out to get any drops out when your done benching.... I got the di-electric out of a s/939 once with WD40, I just kept spraying it in the socket and let it run off down the mobo, it worked fine afterwards, but I didn't really care if it hurt it or not, if I was rying not to kill it, it probably would of..
You can just use Liquid tape on your PCB to, it peels right off when you get ready to remove it, avoid putting it over any sharp klingy type things if you can, it might not be easy to peel of those, so stay away from the ROM chip and you should be fine..
Then I've seen them use "kneadable eraser" to proof with, looks like it comes right off when your done with it....I've never used it or talked to anyone who has, I'll try to hunt up the link for you, it really looked like it would be a really easy non-detectable clean up using it.
