I am not sure what is folded underneath the regulator but based on the picture in post #125, I recommend you NOT power up this card until you verify there are no shorts and that the material is non-conductive. It looks like the silver material is touching the input and/or the output leads of the regulator.
You shouldn't need anything underneath the regulator besides the heat sink and a dab of thermal compound between the heat sink and regulator.
I'd also recommend that you check the solder as it looks like it didn't flow upwards and there could be one or more 'cold' solder joints.
