Default prep

ok, so i decided to run mostly eraser this go round and see how it fairs. i have pj in the socket, since it has saved me more times than i can count.






and of course i have my towel wrap which isn't on the pot right now. i still have a few touch up spots, but hopefully things will go well.

eraser huh?
Good luck John! Never been a fan of it as it seems to transfer too much cold to surrounding smd components..

Hey no problem. I use it all the time, and use a little eraser around the socket if needed.

well, that stuff seems to be holding up pretty good!.
i used pj in and around the socket. i dont want my bracket to start rusting like what it did with just using eraser.

some more of my prep stuff...after changing from eraser to dragon skin....
double insulation of F1 with inner and outer foam, so no shop towels..



clearance for the vreg heatsink



pj + foam over black and (temporary) red slot


benching broke down 975.




after the break down. thanks to pj...cpu socket is intact


my baord about 85 percent covered...including both sets of vreg



my 60L dewar




and i might add that wit the double insulation of foam around the F1, cold seem to be stopped dead in it's tracks. no longer is board covered with ice either.(around cpu pot, vreg, nb or mem slots and surrounding components) technically i only had the fans there to try and push the ln2 vapor over the other parts...lol. for some free cooling...(that's a work in progress - haha)

hopefully ill get some good parts so i can get back to some serious benching!!

Warning!! When you get below around -150 dragon skin can't hold up to the cold and it will crack. I've been using it for over 6 months nw. I've used it on motherbards and graphics cards. I've seen it fail with both. It fails on graphics card big time on the back in the gpu area when going sub-zero. So now i use Dragon Skin n the front of my gpu's and eraser or 1/2in foam on the back.
If your using it on a motherboard then i suggest only skinning up to the cpu cage and then using eraser for the rest of the job. You should also be careful not to let the liquid get into or near the socket. It can flow into the pins and make a real mess of your board.

PS: For everyone... Imageshack links have a hijacker don't click on them. Find another place to upoad your photos bud. Imageshack = pos.
