Get pipe insulation, it slides over your hose.
You will need to insulate around your socket, and insulate the block like Klownin already said.You might try looking around at hardare stores for insulation tape.

i'm not an expert at this stuff but I've heard that you should usedielectric grease in the socket holes so you don't short out the socket

Yep that too, dielectric grease in the socket holes and inside of the socket.Silicone around the socket(not on the socket!)and on the back of the motherboard over the socket.Then a neoprene gasket around the socket that doesn't push against the block, and is air tight....
Oh and block insulation of course....
