Dielectric grease might come handy for places where you cant insulate
Good luck with the project
I'll chip in with liquid electrical tape for insulation (thanks to Trixxxy). Great stuff, paint it on, let it dry and once you've done with it you can easily peel it off leaving no mess.
Yeah i've been looking for that liquid tape for a while and nowhere in the uk seemed to sell it, though i think i saw it in RPW catalogue so going to check when i head down there next
I got it off the net from a car restoration site, I'll see if I can track it down again.
Edit:- Here, half way down in 3 colours.
Man that tape looks great... wish we had that back in the old days
Anyone tried that for insulating the socket in a Mk2 Gt mount?
I am wondering applying that, first in the boardds pcb and socket,then applying dielectric grease on top, if its gonna solve all the long term condensation probs with phase change running 24/7...
Thats awesome thanks jokester will get some in for the future though think this already pretty well insulated for the moment
Don't think you would be able to use the tape in the socket as it sets like rubber, so either it would set before you put the CPU in or the CPU would be a struggle to get out of the socket once it dries if you put it in wet.
But it's great for painting onto the PCB before putting neoprene/foam over the top.
Hahahahaha Matt i win, new chip is here and still on page 1
Windows seems buggered though so just re-installing then hopefully the mach2 will see life again, it's been bored for a while now
so what you're basically saying is that by post 70 you have a chip which appears to work but you haven't got windows running?
I don't consider this lost! The wager was getting something working.

Nice quick rush there but
NOW break it
A taster, Sub 30second superpi at only 2.6ghz
is that air coled?
thats faster than my 2.65 X2 by a couple of seconds already
anyway.. I really ought to be working, I'm sure people are looking over my should thinking "that lazy b*****d is browsing forums!"
Bah damn you dothan
Ok dilemma you folks can help with.
I can either
A. Take the IHS off my dothan and fit the mach 2
B. Leave the IHS on my dothan and try and botch the mach 2 on another way
C. Ignore the mach 2 altogether and use air untill i buy dry ice
D. Botch the mach 2 onto the x800 and use air on the dothan
E. Kill them, kill them all
I vote E, it's what I do.
A combination of D and E tbh.
ignore the heat spreader and just fit the round part of the march 2 to the center of the dothan and should cover the hot spot and then the rest will be cooled by conduction of the plate. and hopefully no water will get in there if it can be sealed somehow. good luck hope it goes well.
Aye there to worry of cracking the core though and since i've killed my 730 i'm being cautious
/goes back to sorting out messed up windows install
Your a braver/crazier man than me
Good luck with it
