                Soooo what you're telling me here is...when I void the warranty and open my expensive graphics card open to liquid metal thermal paste the processor anyways...that I should also hydro dip its' enclosure? I like the way you think!

                                                                When spraying the water do many sprays of each color, aim the spray in the center and don’t move when spraying and repeat so you get like a tree log pattern or a target shape. Then take a toothpick and go through all the layers so it looks like the new pewdiepie pattern
