Watercool My P6X58D-E

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all, i've recently made the jump to watercooling by buying the XSPC Rasa RX360 Kit. Now temps are ok with my CPU but i've noticed that the Mothboard Chipset gets hot! I haven't measured the temps, just touched the Heatsinks on the board itself and they are indeed hot.

Im thinking maybe it would be a good idea to get some Watercooling on them too? Unless this is normal to get quite hot?

Anyway im not sure what blocks to buy, i've found a couple blocks just not sure about them in regards to both performance and compatability

Chipset Block 1 EK

Chipset Block 2 MIPS

As for MOSFETS i couldn't find EK ones to match the block so....

MOSFET Block 1 MIPS

MOSFET Block 2 MIPS

These MOSFET Blocks are also labelled 1 and 2 on the website, looking at their diemensions im guess one is specfic for one side of the CPU and the other for the other if that makes sense to you

Does anyone have any knowledge of the mentioned blocks or know of better ones for my board as im struggling to find some, or even if someone could provide a link to someone who's WC'ed there P6X58D-E for me to check out

Many Thanks

Matt

You'd need to be 100% sure that the MIPS block would fit your motherboard. Your motherboard has 2 capacitors between the X58 and SB chip and the EK definitely has cutouts in the block for it.

Use the EK configurator http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/step1 and you should be able to find both the X58 and MOSFET blocks.

Edit: I'd avoid the nickel plated blocks

I was looking at this a while back, You need to watercool your NB but your mosfets are fine.

I'd just go with the EK-FB-ASUS X58 block and not worry about the rest.

MB/RAM blocks are more for looks than anything else ,if you trying some super aggressive OC's ..get it other wise it will choke your flow.Mothboard Chipset will get hot and it's normal

Oh rite didn't realise that, cheers matey. I've checked out another website and they do a MOSFET kit that seems to match the EK Block at WCUK, Linky, so may look at getting that.

Cheers matey, one thing though the NB and one of the MOSFET Heatsinks are connected via Heatpipe if i remove the stock cooling that MOSFET Heatpipe go's also. So i figured might aswell do it all?

I am after higher OC, currently sat at 4400Mhz but want more for benching and the Heatsinks are already Hot. In fact im looking for a Golden i7 930, theres a guy in the states that has one gonna contact him about buying it.

I know what you mean about choking the flow and im only running the Res/Pump Combo that comes with the kit, will probably have to upgrade that at some point also to help that.

Better cooling for the NB can help with stabilizing a high OC, especially in high ambient conditions.
I'm thinking of getting a NB block for my sig rig because I've been having some NB temperature related stability issues while folding 24/7 at 4.3Ghz in up to 32ºC ambient temps.

Water cooling the MOSFETs is beyond useless IMO, same for the SB.

If you WC the NB, you can just cut the heat pipe and keep using the stock MOSFET heat sink. With the stock setup, the NB heat sink is actually dumping heat to the MOSFETs via the heat pipe, so doing away with the pipe is actually a cooling upgrade for that bank of MOSFETs.

I'm kind of leaning more in the direction of putting a good air cooler on the NB, rather than dump more heat into my loop.

After giving it some more thought i may just leave the Motherboard blocks and tone down my OC i think i'd be pretty happy with 4200Mhz with HT enabled don't need to push further. 4.2Ghz was my aim in the beginning for a 24/7 clock frequency as my ulitmate goal is to have a sperate rig purely for benching, want one of those Dimastech benchies, then i'll get all silly with Watercooling on that, go for high performance WC and nothing but.

For now however all i want is a good OC on my CPU and to get both my 6950s underwater with a good OC on them too. Hopefully one RX360 can handle that, not to mention that pump.

Cheers for all your responses though guys, its most appreciated.

Now, which Full cover GPU blocks do i want
