Question about the stuff you progripped/pastlidipped, wouldn't that make the components less capable of releasing heat ? Causing them to overheat ?

I would love to be able to do this but doesn't seem like a good idea redface.gif

I always mask off the parts that need to disperse heat. The only part of the RevoDrive that gets hot is the bridge chip. Which was masked off.

Wow, amazing work. I have been going through your builds the last few days and your craftsmanship is superb! I apologize if you have covered this, but I am curious; what tools do you use to make such clean cuts in the cases and finish them so professionally?

I use a hand nibbler for all my cuts. It plus a whole lot of files.
