Just insulate around and behind the pcie slot. Then put some grease into the slot. Probably the safest way although you might be able to make it airtight if you put eraser around the slot with the card inserted to create an airtight seal.

Im more for Dialectric grease in the video card socket.

all I do is liberally paint the entire MOBO and GPU with liquid electrical tape and throw vaseline in the PCI-E and DIMM slots as well as the CPU socket and you are good to go, its a hell of a lot faster than spending hours with kneadable eraser

I used to use grease and liquid electrical tape and found it a huge hassle whenever you upgrade. Getting rid of that stuff is a PAIN. Now I'm insulated with kneaded eraser 24/7 under phase and have had no problems with condensation. I think spending an hour doing kneaded is worth not trashing the board, you can just keep it on til your next session

I'll try and upgrade this guide with my updated insulation methods next time I have to insulate.

will insulating your motherboard permanently (chiller for daily use) result in any overheating near the vrm area? I'll be using either neoprene, or Elastomeric Closed Cell Foam. (which one is better?)

No, the low temperature helps with that issue (sort of spreads through the board). I have actually revised my insulation method to using kneaded eraser.

Follow the guide I linked above, I use neoprene on top of the eraser so my layer's actually look like so:

Cooling apparatus of choice
neoprene gasket (circle cut out over cpu)
shop towel
kneaded eraser
motherboard

Make sure to get a good seal with the kneaded eraser if it's for 24/7 use. I do not recommend using ANY kind of dielectric grease in your socket. I ran phase change for months at a time without any problems. It's all about the seal.


Hope this helps.
