It all depends on what your plans are. 24 x 7 operation short runs all of this information would be helpful because without it as you have already noticed you'll most likely not get much of a response

Recently I was putting new doors into my home, and they have spray foam that will not expand so that you can use it between the door frame and the inner wall. Something like this might work, but i dont know how well it would react with electronics (IE eat the PCB, etc).

just grab some of that alien skin stuff that the dice guys use. It is a silicone fx type stuff that makeup artists use from memory, and you mix it up and then apply it over the mobo and it will dry like a silicone skin and should be waterproof if applied thoroughly.

The only major problem is that some parts of the mobo shouldn't be covered, like mosfets and some caps etc, and so your mobo will never be waterproof.

If you really wanted to run sub zero and keep your mobo 100% safe, then you could just submerge the whole mobo into a tank full of mineral oil and any condensation will sink to the bottom of the tank and your mobo will be fine with the mineral oil acting as a water barrier
