[Official] ASUS ROG Rampage IV X79 Owner's Club - Page 51

post #501 of 9814
O.K. finally got all my parts in but I have one problem at the moment.

I am using the EK EN HF waterblock and the mounting kit that was enclosed does not have the risers that EK is saying are necessary to achieve optimal results.

http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=115&cntnt01origid=15&cntnt01returnid=17

First picture, the black risers were not included.

So...any suggestions on a workaround or should I be trying to contact EK about it?

I would post some pics but I'm cameraless atm, working on that too.

Thanks.

You don't need it unless your running SLI/Crossfire.

I have the same block, and i installed it without these spacers. Correct me if im wrong, but there shouldn't be too much of a performance difference from a 2mm washer.

And how about giving the dimms extra power?

"This unforseen difference in mounting pressure could yield up to 1.5°C higher CPU temperatures (according to our internal testing) thus not fully utilizing the cooling capabilites of the EK-Supreme HF series water block."

I wouldn't say that it's "too much" but still why spend money on a high performance part and not reap the full benefits. I guess I could go with it for now until they release a new alternative to this particular system.

If it bothers you just get four 2.5mm plastic spacers and put them in. Doesnt seem too fancy.

You can use the spacers that came with the Supreme HF for the socket 1366, works like a charm ;)
