  • What is this goo in my PSU?

    • This is RTV (room temperature vulcanizing) silicone. It’s a glue-like substance used to keep heavier parts in place on the PCB during transit. It is also sometimes used in magnetic components to help reduce coil whine. The color of the RTV can be white, black or gray.
