Maximus IV Extreme Water Block

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of going fully water cooled, but if i remove the original mosfets etc do i void the warranty?

Also what the best way to apply TIM?

Warranty is still intact, although you will need to put the original heat sink back on for RMA's. I use a credit card (or something similar) cut in a third long wise. Put a drop of TIM on the chip and use the cut credit card to spread it out.

honestly, there is no need. i have the maximus iv and unless you are going to b doing like hella serious oc, there is no point. save the money for some 6970s when you get the chance, or get some better ram, or if you dont already, put your cpu on wc. guaranteed 300mhz extra oc. Ahh, best idea ive had so far, save the money for ivy bridge or x79 chipset =].

Looking for some ram for my MIV Extreme I am a fan of Mushkin I was looking at these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226184 but another question is will a 1.65 volt ram kit work with the MIV Extreme. I have an extra kit lying around.
