    Yeah, I was struggling to find enough bench space in the lab. to be honest. I was planning on using a spare fume hood to keep the thing really well vented, but one had P2S5/alumina in it (fatal by inhalation; 100 ppm causes pulmonary embolism) and the other had dimethyl sulfate in it (a known carcinogen and mutagen) so I didn't go there ...

    mmph, 100ppm isn't exactly a lot. I think you made the right choice.

    First post. Thought it would be fitting that I introduce myself with some frosty pics.





    The board wasn't powered on here, but I do love that shot.

    Water + electron movement = death.
    Water + no electron movement = non-death.

    Just have to be really sure it is dry before you fire it up again.
    I usually do that by heating the board up to 140-170*f for a while, water doesn't stick around at those temps very long.

    From the weekend of May 20th:

    3770k + 580 Matrix


    Couple pics from last night (3770k + MSI 7970 Lightning):

    Conformaled motherboard (drying outside)


    Work in progress!


    Will hopefully have the GPU under LN2 either tonight or tomorrow. I think I have about 20-25L left.

    It was only sitting there for a minute or so, and the psu doesn't run hot anyway.

    Yeah, I couldn't believe how much ice built up on the pot. Yeah the psu has a drinking problem, so we buy it the cheapest stuff we can. I keep telling it that it's not safe for it to be drinking, but it just can't seem to put the bottle down. It's actually my roommates, I am a whiskey guy myself.
