I'm not sure air can get to the pot though. This pot weighs probably 3LBS or so and this fiberglass insulation is wrapped so tightly that I can pick up the pot just by the insulation and it won't fall out, I have also tried to slide the insulation off myself and found it was very difficult. Its on there pretty well.

Insulation on the pot is not so much to prevent the condensation from happening, but to keep it to a level where you can control it with paper towels and whatnot.

Yeah I'm thinking of just eraser or maybe eraser and LET for the board.

I really hope I don't end up like you, I'll cry if my GIG Z77X UP7 dies.

EpicAMDGamer Does this insulation look like it'll work for a dice pot? I got this for free today, its some fiberglass pipe insulation stuff. I wrapped it really tightly so I don't think ANY condensation will form under it.
