You say tomato I say tomata.
Translates into I say it right, you say it wrong :p

har har, kidding idiotec......I got thermal ceramique and it says 'epoxy' on the tubes, but yeah I went with that instead of AS5 epoxy because frankly, I didn't want to use it since I was epoxying mosfet sinks which are tiny as hell....didn't want to even come close to risk letting that crap leak and messing something up.
