NailPolish as anti-conductive material? Tags: Heatsinks Overclocking Last response: August 20, 2012 11:05 PM in Overclocking Share turnipz August 17, 2012 9:18:57 PM Hey guys, I'm looking to glue some heatsink to mosfets and was wondering if nailpolish is okay to spread on the metal beforehand so it doesnt short out. Anyone know its conductivity or something common that could be used?
