                                      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!

Then take a toothpick and go through all the layers so it looks like the new pewdiepie pattern

                                                                                            SMH guys.... really. I spend more on hydrodipping $200 Transmitters for drones.... Really, massive fail.
