Water Cooling for Bulldozer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I plan on building a watercooled bulldozer system with:

ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131735


Any recommendations on which CPU block i need? I have a cpu block on my current Phenom II 940, but isnt the surface area of the Bulldozer larger? Is anyone advertising good water blocks for this CPU yet?

thanks in advance

Bulldozer's size is identical with the rest of AMD's AM2/3/+ CPUs. Maybe on the inside of the packaging the slilicon is larger, but this won't play on the overall size. You might hold on to the block you have now as Fx processors seem to stay below 125W TDP at stock. After Bulldozer launches we're likely to see optimized blocks, but they shouldn't be very different from a high end AM3 part.
