The Fluke 51s are pretty good. They are spec to -200C. You can get them really cheap http://cgi.ebay.com/FLUKE-51-K-J-THERMOMETER-Used-Excellent-Condition-/260831318734?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cbac212ce#ht_910wt_1166

Might be worth grabbing a few of those thinking.gif

I've been toying with the idea of grabbing a DT304 but for $150 it's a bit steep.

I'm also curious...do you put anything on top of the LET? Like a layer of shop towels, then neoprene, etc? I'm assuming eraser doesn't do well with the LET.

Using the LET would be similar to the dragon skin I use, after the board is covered I use a bit of eraser to seal the cpu into the bracket (airtight), then a piece of shop towel with the cpu square cut out & a neoprene gasket & the pot.

I put on one big goopy layer... thickness is probably around 1/32". At this thickness, it takes about five minutes to start drying and about an hour for the thickest parts to dry fully. When you pull this stuff off, you can see every detail from the PCB... I'm talking traces and all. There's absolutely zero room for moisture to get in there.

I usually do a layer or two of paper towels on top of the LET to absorb any condensation that may sit on top of it along with my gasket.

Bass, my girl complains I don't get off my rig as is, after the 20/21st @ microcencter, she worries you may have pulled me in deeper to the dark world of overclocking. Can't wait to get the 965 cold.

Overclocking: An addicting drug that for some reason our girls all hate.
