Default Re: Conformal coating on a A8N32 SLi mobo

Cover the back of pcb with neoprene, armacell, or closed cell foam on top half of mobo or 2 inchs around the cpu to be sure. Attach it with some adhesive. You can also look for rolls of armacell or closed cell 1/8" with adhesive backing at homedepot or ACE hardware.

Same with top of PCB, needs 1 inch around socket to be condensation proof. I prefer a corona X or red insulation tape paint or at least clearcoat nailpolish over the conformal coating on top of pcb. Just easier to remove and apply. The mosfets and caps will be harder to cover but all you need is to insure water doesn't drip on it.
