Very few companies step up and make a water block for a mb. Your best bet is to contact EK and ask them if they plan to make a block for your mb. There is an inherent risk in going with EK, but apparently, they are changing their manufacturing methods (A revised product has yet to be put threw inspection by a 3rd party). The reason I mention EK, is that they make quite a few mb blocks.

Alternatively, just get some universal blocks for the chipsets and vrms and finish your loop.

Keep in mind, most mb waterblocks are more for looks than function. The stock cooler with good airflow does a good job. My 2cents.gif

So i received the block from the ek shop, installed it but ive noticed that the original heatsink got aluminium plate at the back covering small chips on the other side of mb. The ek waterblock dont have such plate so it doesnt cover those chips that look like voltage regulators. Im fraid of pushing this board too far since can burn silicon thats not cooled or monitored...

yea, though you might have to make a run to the hardware store to pick up longer screws, and maybe some rubber washers or springs if you don't cut the screws to the right length(if they need cutting)

This block really looks good

Those stock backplates on ASUS boards don't do any cooling at all if you ask me.
Chips are gonna cool down over circuit connections as well.

The original backplate got threaded screw permanently fixed to it which is different size to what ek use.

Hope u r right but those backplates had thermal padding on them picking up those chips. its just they maybe dont need that much cooling but im planning to oc the bugger proper tight - with it might start to matter

I'd say it is more a backplate for stabilization.
Thermal pads are also like cushins, they protect chips as they can break easily.

You may power up board with heat pipe on and touch that backplate after an hour or so
(make sure of grounding).
It should not be extremely hot.
