Welding supply places sometimes have it, or any industrial gases supplier will have it.

For insulation/corrosion protection, I recommend a dielectric grease+foam.

I found that most everywhere has a place called "AirGas". Which they will carry it. also i like the dragon skin for insulating the board a little better then, pj. But everyone seems to have their personal choices on what they use. If you like to check out the dragon skin here is a link. Also what pot are you using for the ln2 or dice runs?

if you're going to use LN2 do your self a favor and go with a F1 Gemini from Kingpincooling.
you wont be disappointed at all. I have 3 complete Gemini pot's, 2 LN2 bases and a Dice base thats unreleased at this point....
search in this section, there are a few good posts about prepping your board and the items needed. a lot of people go with dry ice at first to get use to going sub zero and then work into LN2. either way have fun and enjoy !!!

is it your first time to do sub zero cooling?
I suggest start with dice, as LN2 is more colder and will create condensation on a large part of the board, as for dry ice, mostly around the socket are and near the first memory slot.
Work on your insulating technique
Work on dice cooling as for LN2 has a different technique specially on Intel base platform.
