Yeah, I remember seeing that on some boards, but I haven't seen anything relatively modern, all my boards are probably 10+ years old. Everything else is a laptop, and those are definitely packed, both sides.

I have seen people use a salt or sand bed with a board heater. Not sure how well that works, but I may try it before going with an infrared system.
