alcohol is non conductive and evaporates quite readily. That's why if you spill water on something electrical you should power it off and hit it with rubbing alcohol to displace the water. Then it evaporates and leaves no residue thumb.gif

I am mostly using deductive reasoning. Its not water and its not Oil so it must be Alcohol

Okay what I don't get is doesn't alcohol ruin the PCB ? I know alcohol will ruin acrylic for example, I'd thought it would dry a pcb out and make it brittle or something.

haha it looks like I might get to use the heatgun again that I just bought to bend the acrylic to make a bracket for my res. Didn't think i'd ever use it again lol.

So it seem like my 2 options are alcohol, or heatgun... I'm not sure which one scares me more as far as ruining ram

I'm guessing the slightly smaller higher rpm fan ?

here is how it looks now, I am also wondering if putting in a fan in pull on that top right slot next to the top radiator would be worth it...

Now I kind of wish I had bought one of those small rads to fit that spot.

Yes I know the red ram looks horrific with the blue mobo and blue on the SP120's, I have blue vengeance ram but the heatsink on it is way too tall to be able to fit with that tubing going over the ram. rolleyes.gif

now I kind of want to take the heatsinks off the gskill ram and spray paint it blue with an oil based paint.


How you liking the psu? I just test fired both of mine to check all the fan connections smile.gif. Love the quality but the pcie cables were a tad too short and i had to make some compromises in routing the cables.

Sweet looking loop there btw thumb.gif

The V1000? It's great, I have a ton of them in my mining farm. I wish the cables were sleeved but the EVGA G2 1000's I have with sleeved cables wouldn't have fit in the bottom with the way the tubing from the video card to the res goes. The G2 1000 is stupid big

The V1000 actually works perfectly because it puts a bit of pressure on that tube and stops the bottom video card from sagging.

Thanks for the compliment btw. I put a ton of work in to this loop and I had to custom make that connection piece between the 2 video cards.

Slowly heat and peel! I did it to remove the adhesive between my cell phone screen and the glass. Just go slow and you won't ruin anything.

Yes I saw that, that ram is a slightly older model than the one I have, I have rip jaws -X also digging around with a knife seems fail to me ?
