Heat sink digging into some solder (Rasa RX360 + Maximus IV)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm assembling my PC right now and have the XPSC Rasa RX360 (1156 plate) and the Asus Maximus IV Extreme (P67 1155). One of the corners of the back plate of the water block (back side of mobo) isn't able to go all the way down because of a solder joint. It's your typical mound of solder + small cylinder sticking out. I'm worried that my metal water block could conduct electricity from that or could damage the solder. I've already locked it down and it bend the solder in the process. I'm okay or what? The 1156 plates work with 1155... it's just bad placement of a solder joint on Asus's part.

In other news, doing a leak test right now First time WC!

put some electrical tape over it or use some conformal coating. Also nail polish can work but it's very thin and easily flakes off. I suggest the electrical tape.

yea the back panel has no plastic coating on the back of it? that is very odd?

The instructions explicitly state to remove it. Strange... I'll do the electrical tape thing. Thanks =]

The electrical tape is a must, but do to possible vibrations, I might go a step further, and put a dab of pure silicone on the spot in question, and then electrical tape over that.
