You might be alright at your present temperature. As you approach the freezing mark, I guarantee the cold CPU will 'transfer the cold' (remove the heat from) thru the socket base and condensation will form on the backside of the Slocket and inside the socket itself. If you don't see any moisture on the back of the card, you're OK. Most people insulate the entire Slocket card, front and back.

depends on how cold the peltier is making the chip, and how many fans in youir case there are.

ok maybe ill insulate the whole thing just to be safe...where do i get closed cell foam?
hardware store?well i idle at 14c and surf the web at 18c and the highest peak i get is 32c with 3dmark...this is cool eough for me..i didnt put a pelt on for any reason i was fine before just did it for the fun of it.. the back side of the slocket isnt even cool..i was just worried about the cpu pins because the outer parts of the cpu must be cooler than the core right?

Kinda tight fit in there
Use the base of meat packing, ie; ( the white yellow or red "foam" that chickens/ steaks , come ontop of....) That'll do ya

Besides insulating it better/ try putting thermal grease on the ENTIRE cold plate, including the sides... for some reason when this is done, there is much less of a chance of condensation.

you can build a vinal box and fill it w/ silicone conformal coating... but i guess you'd kindof need to be watercooling... that alpha is a little tooo big to fit in there

Kebabman...errr...KeBoMaN: Armaflex is the stuff I use in the PanaFlow sandwich. That stuff is GREAT, so if you can get your hands on some of it, do it!! Easy to cut, form, and the best of all, GREAT insulator. Pretty cheap too.

What in the world are those things? You've insulated your peltiers? Is that it?
