Think most of us have the Rev 2 board.

Anyhow as posted before this is what I got and use:

Get some Dielectric grease and cover the area on the back in a thick layer.

Try to keep it away from the seal string though as it soon removes its stickyness.

This is what I did:

Posted by Russell_hq on xtremesystems:

'You can get this from http://www.farnell.co.uk

3821407 PLASTIC COAT SPRAY 200ML Volume 200 ml £3.55

537019 SILICONE COMPOUND 100G DOW CORNING (DC4) £3.60

3821456 COLDKLENE DEGREASER 200ML Volume 200 ml

You get a clear waterproof coating for the PCB, a dielectric grease for the socket and a cleaner (recommend for removal of clear coating)

The beauty of this is you get everything you need to condensation-proof the board and socket, farnell has a minumum order for credit cards, £10 before VAT, and this comes to £10.11 (took me a while to find the products that would take me to 10 quid) and then you get free delivery. Total cost £11.88'
ok i am about to order 4 dielectric grease and 2 cleaning degreasers....dont need the pcb laquer cos i got some and it didnt do nothing....£20 all together...

better have some now rather than searching for the similar products back in greece....cos in a month its goodbye UK forever

Good one, I can't imagine you can keep loosing those boards at such a rate!

its the first time i am gonna order from them

tell me about it about the boards..first one lasted 3 months...

this one 1 week after installing the GT...

it seems that the socket are is oxidised and shows up on the back of the board...so the problem lies in the front of the board...

Hmmm mine is gonna get some grease on the front too!

Anyhow as for the ID, you have to sign up but if its on the order form just put your name I guess. Might ask for an order number too so just make one up.

That's all you need to do... dielectric grease the front and back of the socket... fill all the pin holes in the socket itself, and the gap in the center of the socket. Whenever you have the Evap Head mounted, there is still air trapped in these gaps, and that air can form condensation. Using dielectric grease, you fill those gaps with something other than air.... therefore no condensation. Condensation also cannot occur on the surface of dielectric grease, hence it's use on the rear of the board over the whole socket area within the back cell. This prevent corrosion & residue, which is electrically conductive and can cause damage such as that seen above.

marci

yesterday i received the grease and cleaner from farnell

i thought why dont i spray the back of the board

only sprayed a bit

used an old pair of....boxers to clean it...guess what...i didnt even "brush" it

it came off on its own...now my board is clean man...need to do another pass and its RMA time definitely a lot lot lot better than alcohol man....i couldnt believe it

im oprdering my grease in the next few days, i just wanna double check wot i need to do:

1.) I need to put it in the pin slots of the socket

2.)put it arround the socket both front and back, under the blocks seal strung to the board?

3.) Cover the whole of the back of the board? or just a bit?

Thanks!
