I have come to ask/find out if any ones fitted a XSPC RayStorm water block to one of these boards and if so, did it fit well, as in not catching anything on the board it shouldn't be?

Hello there

I have set up my rig yesterday with asus maximus extreme-z motherboard. Everything seems fine but I am kinda worried about the temparature. CPU- Z says that CPU temp is in IDLE - 30 C, and the motherboard in BIOS is really low too. How is it possible than when I touch the heatsinks on the motherboard , they are so hot? I can't even keep my finger on them for too long.

Is it a normal condition or my MB has some sort of failure?

Belowe is the picture of hot parts. Thx for a reply.

Ps. I am talking bout IDLE condition. I haven't stressed the board yet.

Those heatsinks are not for the CPU... The motherboard temp is giving more or less case temperature. Those heatsinks are for the mosfets/VRMs I believe. They deliver/regulate the power going to in this case to the CPU and southbridge I think. Not sure but your temps are probably normal. Since your idle it doesnt matter because they are still giving power ...

BTW..Disabling the sound card stopped sound from going through HDMI. Also, I got my shaders unlocked with my video card no problem. Gigabytes tweaking software does not allow me to go any higher than catalyst. Might see if Trixx will run I've heard it can let you go higher. Tried tightening my C7 ram and had no luck. Didn't want to pump up the voltage probably why it wouldnt tighten. So currently completely stable at 1.390 at x48 with a slight bump to the ram. 75% LLCalibration. Trying to decide if I want to push it farther Ive got 5ghz benchmark stable but had issues with prime. Temps seem to be a non issue so far.

Thanks for the answer. I would really appreciate if somebody could touch the above mentioned heatsinks and see if they are that hot.

You might get a more accurate answer if you asked in the Maximus Extreme-Z thread here: http://www.overclock.net/t/947485/official-asus-maximus-iv-extreme-owners-club

On my Gene-Z, they are barely warm at idle (about 20 degrees C ambient).
