I'm sure things have changed a bit since I sub zero'd but we used dieletric grease in the cpu pin area and conformal spray on the mobo followed by layers of weather proof adhesive backed foam to insulat around the danger areas these days they use moldable eraser to fill in the gaps but I dont know if they still spray first. its funny I still have a roll of insulating foam tape from back in the day lol. I use it now for vibration dampening

I think Rawz used nail varnish when he did the DICE runs. Otherwise moldable rubber seems to be pretty standard.

You'd think someone would've started making specialised insulation just for DICE cooling

yeah nail polish is another way before applying the foam insulation

I'm sure there are some out there but they'd just be copies of what already works and they'd prolly double the price

Not if they can create an insulator than absorbs moisture but doesn't become saturated/ sodden

Liquid electric tape + lacquer spray / lacquer + dieletric grease + pipe wrap foam insulation tape was the concoction I used to insulate my 24/7 cascade boards and never had an issue.

that would be ok as long as there was a way to get rid of it. Most things like this just absorb and absorb til they cant anymore then bamm leak it out. Better off still preventing it all together.
