If you use paper towels when you insulate, wetness isn't that big of an issue. But yeah, I generally let everything get wet. It only hurts components if you try to turn it on wet.

good point
ok so what do you do to dry the components and how do you check to see if their wet?

i'd be scared to have a bit still in a PCIe slot or something....but i'm assuming this is where dielectric grease comes in?

There are different methods to use, based on how soon you want to use the board again. As gappo said before,

If I'm not benching it right away, I just remove the removable insulation and just let it sit. If I want to bench sooner, I put it under a reptile heat lamp with a fan pointed at it. You can also use a heat gun or a hair dryer. Also, the better your board is covered, the less you have to worry about wetness. I use eraser and clay over most of the top half of the board. I cover my PCIe slots with eraser. I despise using grease because of the mess, but it is common for benchers to use.

Just remember to always use common sense. If it looks like it isn't dry and what not, then don't press your luck thumb.gif

How I dry the board depends on when I plan to bench next. If I have ~12-24 hours before I'm going to bench again, I generally leave everything on the board (including the pot), turn it upside down, and let it sit to dry.

If I want to bench sooner than that, I'll take everything apart and do the same. I've used the oven before as well... it just expedites the process.

Looks for industrial/medical gas suppliers in your area. Someone on HWBot recommended Mansfield Cryogenics a couple of days ago to someone.
