My System Specs

Do I just need to tape it down with electrical tape, or do I need to do anything more sophisticated?
The Hyper212 I had came with a layer of insulation on the 212 backplate already (the instructions on the Coolermaster site says to leave it on). Just installed it on top of the mobo plate already present.
