Congrats, your E5200 does seem to have potential!

As for what you need, insulation do you mean?

Kneaded eraser for a clean board or use nail varnish / vaseline if you don't mind. Neoprene and j-cloths have also been used to help.

Armaflex sheet on the back, eraser around and in the socket and a gasket cut to fit the board is all you really need.

Want me to post a piccy of my currently insulated board for an idea?

Ham's prolly your best man, but as far as insulation goes, I've heard quite a few good things about rubber paint like this. Obviously nice and easy to spread on. If you get a black one it wont stand out too much on the motherboard and best of all if you ever need to rma the board you can just peel it off (if you paint it on thick enough).

Dielectric grease makes an awful mess and can be a RIGHT PITA to clean up.

Appologies for the awful pics...





To be even more safe I really need more eraser on the socket. This setups is used with a rather large doughnut though so it squishes everything into place. That's what causes the impression in the gasket.
