Attach neoprene rubber with Silicone RTV or (preferably) conformal coating.

Dielectric grease you can get for a couple bucks at an auto parts store.

Were can I get Silicone RTV or conformal coating?
Also the Dielectric grease I linked will do the job correct?

I'm asuming that the Silicone RTV spray would be sprayed on and around the the surface of the motherboard were the foam pad goes on the back of the mother board?

dielectric grease

Here is a picture of dielectric grease that is from the Napa Auto Parts Web Site. You can get this stuff from any auto parts store. It is used to 'insulate' the spark plug/wire from air to prevent oxidation.

Silicone you can get at a hardware store or electronics store. Conformal coating is a bit harder to find but Klownin linked to where you can find it.

Yes that dielectric grease will do the job.

I have a Prometeia system running 24/7 and it's only insulated with the prometeia kit. Nothing else. Room temps are 20ºc / 24ºc and never had condensation. Ever. I even used it for 2 weeks in the start and then removed the cooling head and nothing, nada, not even the smalest sign of water or condensation in the processor pins or else where. So, i think you don't need to worry about condensation. BTW i'm running the system since August and loving it ! :beer:
