Electric Tape Spray. It peels off in patches pretty easy but I think if you lay it on thicker it should peel off easier. Little pieces get stuck in the resistors and such on the mobo and need more time dedicated to picking them off the mobo. It could get tedious but I've never had to clean up these boards for rma.

Ran like this on the 680i, 790i ultra sli, 790i digital FTW and quite possilby soon the E759-x58 (Maybe).

Kneeded eraser seems the way to go if you're worried about rma.

I honestly hate kneeded eraser, so im looking for an alternative....

im still worried about RMA though if its a new board. (ive been through a couple classys and im tired of shelling out the dough)

I guess ill try some liquid electrical tape next time then some kneaded eraser over that.

I have used wax before and that works really well, but its hard to remove.

Vaseline will clean off easily with acetone. Just put some acetone in a spray bottle and tip mobo and spray. I have been benching sub-zero with this board ever since I put up this guide. I haven't had one bit of trouble with moisture. For me it was well worth it. As far as mess goes, the only thing I do that even gets me close to the Vaseline is change out cpus Just keep your hands off the Vaseline.
I'm not suggesting anyone else do this. "It's your thing - do what you wanna do"

My first choice. No mess, and it ends up being transparent to the point where it's hard to tell that there's anything on the board at all.

Hmmm, and you can put it in the socket as well?

eraser and vaseline together is a bad idea

either method works fine

i prefer eraser myself....its perfect and not messy but i do use grease as well in combination for memory/PCIe slots etc
