Plz Help Phase Change Insulation Questions

Hi I have been using phase change for almost 2 years now. I have a few questions if you guys could please help me out with. I had been using P/J on my motherboard for insulation for 2 years now without any problems. I have been thinking of trying out the eraser method for insulation as the clean up of P/J is a big ordeal that I am just tried of of doing. I would like to know if the kneaded eraser method is a better route to take ? I currently live in Florida where is allot of humidity. If I do try the eraser method should I add P/J to the motherboard socket? I would also like to know if I can just by any brand name kneaded eraser ? I also have another problem I been noticing lately that my clam shell does not fit tightly over my evap. As once everything is in place I can wiggle the evap's head front in an almost complete circle. I would like to know how I can go about fixing this.

Thank you

Hello dentnu,

The kneaded rubber eraser method will work just fine for 24/7. Not sure which brand works best but I've heard good things about General's brand. I use Parker brand cork tape which is very sticky like seal string and does not harden over time.

For high humidity use a back plate heater and provide plenty of airflow around the socket area. Yes use some dielectric grease in the socket for 24/7 use. You can get a little tube of that at any auto parts store. Put a folded paper towel on the upper vga to be safe.

You can take up side clearance between the evap and foam inserts with 3M cloth, Gorilla tape or electrical tape. If inserts are worn where they contact the top of the evap then maybe try adding a thin layer of 4min jb weld to reinforce and true up the surfaces.

Good Luck!
