well this is a good question. I do use the eraser putty, in fact that is what is in-between the water blocks. eraser putty goes on as a soft putty but hardens to a substance more like foam. this works great between the water blocks so the hot water blocks do not effect the cold ones. than I covered the entire cold side water loop in two layers of foam. finally I covered the entire cold side water loop all the way to the chill box, in a 1/4" clay. the clay seals the cold side water loop away from the ambient temperatures in my room. it also keeps things like the water pumps, cool, and dry. as they stay around the same temp as the cold side water.


I use molding clay, it is more expensive than normal clay. to give some reference I did use between 50-60 LBS of clay to cover the cold side water loop.
