Cooling the P5W DH

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm thinking about reseating the chipset HS on my board to see if AS5 is better than the goo I'm using now. At the same time, I wouldn't mind getting rid of the cooling pipe solution and add an active cooler to the NB and mount separate ram sinks on each of the mosfets. The padding under the mosfet cooler can't be a good heat transfer agent, can it?

Any opinions?

Cheers!

Hey man, the stock p5w dh deluxe nb cooler works very well if u add the included fan to it, also it doesnt mess up your cpu cooler flow at all it actually sucks air out the back, if you face it the right way that is but if you want a different cooling option then look for the zalman ones there sexy and work very well with some as5 or thermal compound, good luck man hope I helped

Thanks, but I'm using water so I don't care about air flow around my CPU Not for air cooling anyway...

I've got one of the better chipset coolers, so it's really just the mosfets I worry about. But I could always reinstall if it doesn't work well.

As for the fan that comes with the board, I didn't notice any difference with or without it...

Yeah, but that will add heat to the water, thus reducing cooling capacity for my GPU (OC'd) and CPU (very OC'd)

As I see it there's no need to cool chipsets with water - yet.

I have been looking at this
http://www.thermalright.com/a_page/m...oduct_hr05.htm

for my P5B Dlx...or the HR-05-SLI version for clearance.......I haven't gotten the board out of the box to see exactly how to mount it on the northbridge only, since the heatpipe connects everything......

The HR-05 that Thumper pointed you at is an excellent cooler.....Why don't you just try and reset your coller with some AS5....It should be enough....

I'm already using MX-1, which should be as good as AS5 when it cures, but temps are still 47 for MB. I know some of this stems from the fact that the temp monitor is close to the SB, but...
