    The colour doesn’t matter - you need a neutral cure compound (not an acetoxy cure)

    This is one https://www.sealantsonline.co.uk/Pro...alants/HAN2499

    However I have not used it for sealing electronic components and make no recommendations for or against its use! (But it doesn’t liberate acetic acid!)

    Thanks for the all the comments, and suggestions.

    At this moment i am settling with 4.5ghz at 1.235V, seems stable so far, to be honest i do not see a massive improvement in performance from 3.5-4.5ghz so i am not really interested in trying to get to 5ghz.. now the lower temperatures are what have impressed me the most no game or benchmark goes above 52c @ 4.5ghz much better than i started at 3.5ghz failed overclocks and stock temps of 82c on OCCT.

    Getting my DDR4 2400mhz ram on either tighter timed or higher frequency or both is the next thing i am going to focus on.. i did get it to 2800 and 3000mhz and had a couple of post errors but when it worked it was noticable in games and windows (Windows loaded quicker and games low FPS were better)

    And then re-applying thermal compound on my Gigabyte G1 Gaming 970 and overclocking it is my next mission.

    The overclocking bug has well and truly infected Raven here. He'll be looking at LN2 and ice boxes next!

    Goes to start googling the names...
    Actually tempted to replace the Gigabyte G1 970 thermal compound with Conductonaut liquid metal, but seen horror stories about it reacting with aluminum but still researching the idea.
