    How to insulate the top of a waterblock?

    Hey guys,

    I have been a long time watercooler but now i am thinking of setting up a waterchiller. How would i go about protecting the top of the waterblock from condensation?

    Also a few more questions.

    Do you guys know of any good links on how to insulate the cpu and such?

    I am going to go to homedepot and pick this up this weekend.

    Is this sufficent enough for a chiller?



    Thanks,

    You can get spray on foam, that once it hardens will provide good insulation, at the risk of looking ugly.

    take a foam sheet, cut it to fit your blocks entire top area, cut out small circles for the piping and screws to go through and finally top it of with a bit of plexi / lexan or similar (holes in the same places as in the foam) and screw it on. should be ok.

    that ought to do it. some of the phasechangers do it like that, so it can't be too far off
