Custom Flashdrive shell Question Answered

I've got a couple flash drives with broken cases, but the drive itself still works. I was wondering if anyone happens to know if the drive would survive temperatures high enough to harden modeling clay.  This would involve about an hour at 300 degrees Farenheit in an oven for hardening.

Personally, I wouldn't risk it (I'd be afraid of melting solder). I would try an air-drying clay I stead, or a material with a much lower processing temperature, such as polymorph (60C) or Sugru (room temp).
