6 hours a night, 4GHz.

Its just in case though, only £10 or so and like 10 mins to prepare the board. I checked the back last week and all was fine. The grease is as easy to apply as it is to remove from the back.

Ferret This grease seems a preferable reversible solution to using conformal coat - will probably use myself

These problems sound very similar to my max3 woes,although i never find any condensation in my rear cover.I'm still not sure what is causing it,and i've already tried dc4 and double sealing.Currrently, i'm trying to rma my mach2,then i will try again.

Nice one mate...

i used pcb laquer buddy...

and i mean a HUGE coating...i am having trouble cleaning my board....

what i am thinking of is covering the socket area on the back with SEAL STRING

i got 3 rolls here...a thin area will do the job dont you think?

i am just annoyed by the fact that i paid for 2 canisters of laquer and used nearly half bottle and that didnt stop it at all...

if i use grease on my next board the area near the seal string that doesnt get covered will still have probs right?

my last dead asus had melted a solder in the middle...

last 3 times i noticed condensation was in the right hand side of the board...

i cant understand why i am getting condensation + why others with double layer of seal strinf from the outside are getting probs too...

i mean is it a board thing or something...lol

seriously i was thinking of getting thr ic7 max 3 yesterday but its voltages are bad if you dont mod the board too...

i am really running out of ideas...

Some people do, I put some in the middle of the socket but none touching the chip, probably safer to do so though. A good spray of the degreaser and it all melts away, I think its very different than the Vapochill grease people think of (although I do not know first hand). I put about 4 coats of plastic spray on the whole back beforehand and a thick layer of grease over the area inside the backplate covers.

I also use the grease with foam on my pelted gfx card. Really though if you put this stuff on the water will never break through it.

Those silicate bags aren't up to the condensation that could form on the mobo
