Default Re: Should I?

I use a very old 20gb HDD that is already encased in rubber.
It should be good right? Its not getting anywhere cold. I'm gonna leave the board inside and use some of that weird plastic tubing with the springy coil in it (no idea what its called) so i can have the blower outside.

You usually wrap the area in foam and towels to absorb any moisture at first but once you start going it is so cold that any moisture just instantly freezes. After you are down you unplug everything and let it sit until it thaws and let it dry before you start it up again.

No. They mash clay down around the cpu socket so condensation can't make it to the board.

I've seen a few seal it with nail polish too.

I'm gonna try it either tomorrow or the next day. Gotta get my dad to agree that I can steal his PSU for a couple days.

I'm curious how high I can get the voltage with this thing.

Should I set it to max at 70C, 75C, or 80C?

That's what I normally do, but I've seen people get them to like 100 and they were OK.

I normally tell the BIOS to shut down at 75C when I'm doing really heavy overclocking.
