I meant if it could cause what it has absorbed to evapourate at the same time as absorbing new moisture

Just submerge the board in mineral oil.

It works but it is hopelessly impractical if you want to change anything on the motherboard.

Especially physical incremental OC buttons like on the X58-OC

eraser is the first layer.. covering the entirety of the cpu area.. from ram sockets to vrm area.

then a layer of shop towels..

finally elastomeric closed cell foam... i do this for all things subzero

only killed 3 motherboards (before i finally figured it out)

There are many different ways and combo'. Each to their own preferred method. Best trying out what suits you best. Once you find your own preferred method of insulation, you'll setup in no time like a rhythm. The key is not to rush it. Rush it.. and you pay for your mistake(s).. literally.

Me? I use putty eraser around the socket covering that whole bare area and around the DIMM slots up to the southbridge. Best to remove all heatsinks so you know your covering the whole PCB area. I like to build up a raised area around the socket to catch any loose condensation build up stopping it from running down the board into missed areas or none-insulated gaps and cracks. Two layors of neoprene around the socket area nicely cut to match and fit around the pot and socket with vaseline around the socket and between the two neoprene sheets. Neoprene gasket around the pot (should come with your new pot) and then a towel of sorts or thick quality paper towel wrapped around the pot. If you are running phase 24/7 put vaseline or dieletric grease into the socket area. Same with LN2, don't need to with DICE. Vaseline and neoprene on the back of the board around the underside socket area too as condensation likes to build up there if uncovered. Put it between the mounting backplate and board.

When you insulate you have to also consider whether you need to rma or sell on. Eraser and putty are easy to remove without trace.

Liquid electrical tape on the motherboard, it peels off when not needed and leaves no residue and a layer of kneaded rubber eraser on top of that.
