Hello dude. I would like to advocate you that it will be a appalling thought to spray-coat your motherboard or components with anything in view of the fact that it will trap in the heat and burn circuits out. According to me, it would be enhanced idea to attempt to control the air in your computer's locale by making use of an air purifier and dehumitizer.I have shared my knowledge with you, I hope you like it and it helps you.

Hi. As per my knowledge you should seal the case and put HEPA filters over each and every vents. You can seal the boards with the help of epoxy. Consequently I imagine that a spray epoxy will work. However, lot of work will be required and the decomposition isn't going to be that bad on anything which is not steel - the case and screws are going to the only things actually considering dreadful things. Those you can paint up good quality and use WD40

Hey I feel that you should opt for passive cooling system. Passive cooling is a virtual term that lots of people, particularly in the expertise section, given to any gadget that necessitates active cooling, somewhat like a heat sink or in that case a cooling fan along with a airing system. A number of passive cooling techniques include, thermal conducive system like cooking oil or motor oil in order to go under water definite parts, like the Control Processing Unit.

Hey mate, I agree to the above reply. It is a good idea but there are some negatives along with it. The profit of having a passive cooling appliance are a quieter workplace; on the other hand, the costs related with a passive cooling system is on the higher side. Creating a passive cooling system can have need of materials that might have to be bought. In addition, the guarantee will become canceled on tampering. Also, there is no assurance that the appliance will preserve the warmth as successfully as it would if the fans were still in place.
