Maximum IV Extreme and motherboard water block advice needed

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody,

I was just wondering if it is worth cooling the chipsets and the mosfets down with this water block or any water blocks?

Will it improve on performance at all?

I've measured the temperature of the chipset radiator with the temperature sensors that came with this motherboard and it says 49°C. The MotheBoard temperature is 30°C, but what is motheboard temperature? Where is the sensor placed?

Regards.

It depends. If you have high temps on the NB then it may be worthwhile. If you now have poor case airflow now you moved to water, then definitely. If you still have good case air flow, and NB temps are fine, then no, you don't need to in any way.
It does look cool tho..

Edit: It will not improve performance at all, unless you're at the extremes and really pushing the voltages.

Thanks for your reply.

Does anybody know what is a "MotherBoard" temperature? where is the sensor on the motherboard?

My case is the Cooler Master Cosmos S and it is well airy.
