You can substitute shop towels for paper towels (not as good) or you can insulate with kneaded eraser instead.

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.Originally Posted by badatgames18;14694822
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?)
yep... thanks! i'll be follow this guide and post pics when doneOriginally Posted by yomama9388;14696730

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)
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.
