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?

You don't need to coat, sand or otherwise mess with the fets/caps, just lay that on and mount the Hs you have Moto turnipz August 20, 2012 9:11:14 PM Cool thanks Motopsychojdn a c 190 K Overclocking August 20, 2012 11:05:05 PM No problem man, glad to help Moto Can't find your answer ?
