4. Mount the backplate to the rear of the motherboard, make sure no solder points will make contact with the backplate and cause a short

7. Add the 1st layer of neoprene to the top of the CPU socket, add some Vaseline to the top of the neoprene

9. Mount the evaporator head, make sure the sides of evap enclosure slightly depresses into the neoprene and that there are no air gaps.
for insurance you can use Vaseline around the evap enclosure and top layer of neoprene to guarantee an airtight seal

Only you would be able to make this look easy, Travis. :P If only I had a phase unit sitting around my house... and a lot of moldable eraser, haha.
