that frost king has foil on the non-adhesive side? or does the foil part peel off? ive seen that before at home depot but was turned off by the foil..

The foil peels off (and does so easier with a little heat; a hairdryer will do the trick). Frost King is how I've insulated my boards for a couple of years now and I've never had a moisture problem. Every board gets the same treatment:
  • Pot insulation with plenty of blue shop towels around it.
  • 2x Frost king layer
  • {eraser around socket on Intel only}
  • 1x Frost king layer
  • Motherboard
  • 1x Frost king layer
  • Blue shop towel
  • Pot backplate

Here are photos of a board with it & here is one after pot & paper towel application. It's a pain initially, but once cut it goes on & off the board very quickly; much more quickly than having to re-do eraser and much less messy than Vasoline.

guess i dont have enough posts on OCF to see that first link you posted, but i think i get the idea.. the frost king has adhesive on one side and foil on the other; the foil can be removed though if you gently heat it.. thanks

Actually, the adhesive side is the one from which you remove the foil.

(You have to be signed in to OCF to see images I think.)

EDIT - Nope, wrong...the sticky side is the one without the foil. Pull the foil off and the non-sticky side is underneath.

On my frost king roll, the adhesive is on the opposite side of the foil. You can peel the foil off but underneath it is just the insulation no adhesive

Err...yes, indeed. My memory sucks. Just pulled out my roll and Splave is quite right. Thanks for the error correction!

Not needed for LN2, would only consider it when running phase on a daily driver.

I went to pickup velcro for the insulation today. They didn't have any decent quality right sized adhesive backed velcro at the hardware store. That wasnt complete fail. Let alone that didnt cost 20$ or more..... So i went to Harbor freight and found a 32"x2" hook loop velcro strap. Which works perfect. Only cost 2$
