It's a budget board so there aren't any premade 3rd-party solutions. But, I have seen some "universal" products. I am wondering if there is anything one would specifically look or avoid, based on your experience with these products. I am not very skilled in DIY so I'd like to find something fairly straightforward to minimize the possibility that I would damage the board.

The board is the GA 970A UD3P 2.0







Help is greatly appreciated because the VRM temps are really holding back my overclocking.

I have an EK L360 2.0 kit water loop.


products I found:

Koolance MVR-40, MVR-100 no nozzles
HEATKILLER® SW-X DIY, SW-2, SWX-A2, SWX-G3 LT, SWX-A4
Enzotech WMST-66, WMST-73, WMST-78
EK-MOSFET GA 2X KIT-AC

How about putting a 80mm fan directly facing the VRM's at full blast. It's a little ghetto, but some people have done in the past, so no harm in trying. Besides, it'll be as cheap as cheap gets.

I've done it. Even wedging in a 140mm slim fan and hanging it with a bunch of zip ties and tape doesn't cut it.

They really just have to go under water.
