Great temps on that sucker, btw. Almost 4gHz and 18C load w/ TAT is impressive.

That is the lacker I believe, basically just a coat over all the electrical components to keep it from shorting... under idle he is likely into the negative temps.

I use a non-conformal spray, but it is clear... the red stuff is probably easier to identify if you missed any spots.

What about the white stuff up around the socket that looks like whip cream?

Actually that is the dielectric grease, basically more condensation proofing measures. You know that hole in the middle of the 775 socket? Well that has to be filled with this stuff. Basically, the board is a mess after doing all this..lol

And, a little dab of what probably is ASC right in the middle

I thought you were serious at first. And I was sitting here thinking of not wanting to make a strawberry sundae out of my motherboard.

Thanks for the info.

Looking good so far jAkUp. I'm looking forward to checking out your temps. I'm thinking about the Swiftech root myself.

I like the three fans on the top. It will be good to see the finished product.
