Ok time to get down to business! For this guide I choose a nice Celeron 600, a 72-watt peltier, and an Alpha PeP66 with a 38 CFM fan. The Alpha had been modded so that it doesn't take up any memory slots. Please note that the Alpha came pre-assembled with the peltier, cold plate, and the closed cell foam already installed.

   Ok it is slocket modding time! The materials that you need are:

  • (1) Slocket

  • (1) Can of conformal coating silicone spray (I got mine at a radioshack.com store near my house)

  • (1) Tube of silicone rubber sealer

  • (1) Roll of scotch tape

  • (5-6) Toothpicks
  • A lot of time!

   Ok first we need to take the plastic casing off of our slocket. So that it doesn't interfere with our modding. On an Abit Slocket this can be accomplished by pulling on the two side of the front part of the slocket away from the socket assembly.

   Ok with the casing off we are ready to mod! First take out your trusty silicone rubber sealer, and apply a bead of silicon around the out side of the socketů Please note I wouldn't start with the top of the slocket like I did, because you end up turning the slocket a lot and getting your hand in the bead of that you laid down. So start with the sides and save the top for lastů

   There are some problem points were it is hard to get the silicone applicator to reach this is where those toothpicks come in handy. The way I placed the silicon against the socket was to place a big glob in front of the retention clip and push the sealer under. Don't worry about the mess that you will make because you can clean up the clips later.
