I have a sure-fire way of keeping my system dry - I don't use liquid cooling! Of course, I only do minimal OC'ing. I'm too nervous to expose my stuff to a possible leak. I'm willing to give up a little speed in exchange for the peace of mind . . .

all depends how much you're spending on hardware and whether it's worth it to push your components. I've lost a few parts to water (my fault), but it's the price I pay for the performance and especially the silence, which is very important when folding 24/7

but only for intel boards I'm assuming?
why does intel get all the cool stuff

In this case id assume because the newer Intel chips, to my knowledge, run crazy hot at high overclocks

Finally, a board with me in mind! You wouldn't believe how many boards my leaky clam chowder cooling solution has ruined...

If I remember correctly, this is actually the second motherboard that doesn't flinch at a little bit of water; the other one didn't like it much while running though.

Manhattan or New England....God Help you *shakes fist* if you say New England

For my computer, I go with Manhattan, it's thinner and flows better. For eating, I go with whichever has the least sand.

It's a nice thought, but as stated, the pins for the front panel connectors are still exposed (obviously), as I'm sure are the connectors for USB, SATA, fans, and power, as well as DIMM and PCI/PCIe slots. It seems to me that all of those exposed connections, scattered across the motherboard, render the "Conformal Coating" irrelevant against any but the most minor of spills.
