Wow. Trip to HomeDepot was a complete fail (as it usually is)

No LET
No Armaflex/FrostKing/Neoprene

Will have to try a few more places tonight on the way home tongue.gif

Vaseline will be provided and it works well for sub-zero, but it's a mess.  

 

I had to buy armaflex and LET from the states because I wasn't able to find any in any of the hardware stores in Canada.

Ahh.. Ok. tongue.gif

I should have enough armaflex left for a single setup but I wanted to give LET a try as opposed to covering my board in eraser. I'll just give it a go tonight and see what happens.

Does clear nailpolish do the same thing? Just harder to remove? Is there a need to remove it?

I've never used it myself, but I know that others have.  I don't know how well it will stand up to LN2 either, and you're going to have to wash your board in acetone if you ever want to remove it.  I would use vaseline over nail polish if it was me.

Good to know.  A small can can usually do about 3 motherboards and 5 GPUs.

I have lots of LET that i probably wont need, and Frostking (i will need the FK though). Also shop towels.

I'm just reusing my old neoprene, so i hope it hold up okish.

I should start apologizing now for the amount of noobishness that I am going to force upon this event. tongue.gif
