P8Z68-V Pro and EVGA GTX 460 SE waterblocks

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I want to watercool my Asus P8Z68-V Pro, will the Asus P8P67 ones fit on the Z68 board? If so there are three sets of blocks:
MIPS

Watercool HEATKILLER®
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=30687
EK
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=31017
Which of these are the best? Also, with the two that have the southbridge block will the fittings not interfere with the back of my graphics cards?

I also would like to watercool my two EVGA GTX 460 SEs, are these a reference design card? I cant find info anywhere. I see EK makes blocks for reference design 460s.

idealy you want a motherboard block that is in the least about of components possible as it means less fittings and messy tubing.

GPUs are reference - http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/step1_complist?gpu_gpus=453

2x GPU BLOCK http://www.koolance.com/water-cooling/product_info.php?product_id=1063
(koolance due to ek nickel fault.)

EK say there is no block for the asus p8z68.

Thanks for the reply, so my 460s are reference. Has the EK nickel problem still not been fixed? Also, I contacted EK to see if the P67 blocks will fit the Z68. I noticed the Heatkiller set says "ASUS-P8P67 / Z68."

Pretty sure the mosfet cooling is the same. I do believe the MIPS mosfet block claims compatibility for P8x6x boards. So unless the chipset mounting is different between the P8P67 and the P8Z68 boards I don't see a problem.

Apparently the mosfet heatsink has been slightly redesigned. EK says their block will not fit. MIPS and Heatkiller both have a version that will work on a Z68 board. My only problem is I'm worried about the fittings on the southbridge block being in the way of my two 460s or are they not as close as I think?
