Default condensation & TBirds

Hi everyone

I'll be setting up a watercooling system for my 900mhz TBird and KT7 within the next few days and was wondering if I should be concerned about condensation developing on top of the CPU where the exposed electronics are? I'll be using a copper cold plate and 118w peltier along with the water block. I'm going fully insulate the block/tec/cold plate with RTV silicone and foam as well as in and around the socket. Should I go ahead and seal the CPU into the socket so no air can get in or is that just a place that won't likely develop condensation anyways?
BTW, I was thinking of cutting up an old can hugger to wrap the block/tec/cold plate with. Has anyone used this type of method before to insulate?

Dyre ..

That dude over at www.Benchtest.com has done some of the most extensive condensation stopping techniques that I have seen. Check him out. Read all of his Watercooling articles cause each one seems to have a different form of condensation protection.

Don't seal the chip into the socket. Just use vaseline in the area under the CPU and in the pins.
