Basic stuff, but sometimes overlooked.
Yes xie67 is correct yoiu don't want to coat your core with the stuff.
Ok,... thx,.. good idea. But you've done gfx phase change, right? So did you have similar problems? When I first got my vapo that's actually what I was most worried about too,... that the cold would spread through the pcb ( ) and cause condensation to form on the motherboard outside of the clamshell. But it didn't... so why would it on gfx card?
Yes I put a Vapochill XE and Prometeia Mach II GT on various videocards so I have first hand experience.
I'll be honest, I did kill a few videocards although I'm not sure if it was condensation or the voltage mods.
Other areas of the videocard will cool down as well but if you insulate things well, it shouldn't be an issue.
lolicious as for direct die, I always thought that refers to the coolant/refrigerant coming in direct contact wiht the core, at least that's what it means with watercooling. In phase change, that's a bit fuzzy, haha if you find a clear answer, please pass it along.
