Most were supplying screws for the LG1366 cooler/block.

Only ever played with asus x79 boards so having a trusted member's opinion of a Asrock would really open things up for future revamps and builds, especially for friends.

It has the intel bracket so it doesn't need a backplate. The mb has some pretty nice specs. Its not their top of the line but its sort of like the RIVF, where their Extreme11 will be more like the RIVE. It does have the essentials for high end gaming but its not special like the Rog boards. But at this price, I don't mind biggrin.gif

Screws finally came in. I'll mount the cpu block and get pics smile.gif

450

Edit: left is koolance and right is Xspc. I picked up the xspc just in case if I end changing my block down the road. Looks more universal.


double edit: Well, I knew something was not going to go ok with the koolance screws. mad.gif It turns out they use 6-32 threads for the thumbscrews. I swear on their site it said "LG2011 M4" screws. They could have been referring to the base thread that goes into the socket. What a pita, geez Intel, make this harder for all of us rolleyes.gif. Anyways, the XSPC screws are M4 but its a tight squeeze to fit them. Though they worked before as I used M4s with the LG1155 mb and this block.

The xspc screws with the Phobya thumbscrews and springs did the trick. As I mentioned, the Koolance block and the m4 are a tight squeeze. A little silicone grease helped a lot smile.gif. Gonna fire her up soon and see what lg2011 and quad are all about thumb.gif

Aaaaaaaaaaaawesome. Now run furmark and tell me how hot it gets in your cards/room ;D.
How does the water flow through those blocks btw? How does it "know" that warm water is supposed to **** of the blocks? Because it rises?

Going to make sure all cards are showing first. The fourth card I have not tested since I got it immediately and just decided to outfit it with the block (arrived early too). These damn screws really held back the build a couple of days.

I'm running a parallel setup. My loop order is: pump>480mm>gpu(s)>360mm>cpu>360mm> res. Never really had any concerns with the first three on water so I'm not too worried about the fourth one. The blocks have channels the allow the water to flow through paths directly below the core, vram(s),. and vrm(s). Here's a quick pic for illustration:

425

(edit: you can have it flow in either direction tbh, not just what the pic describes)

Fundamentally, its all basic thermal dynamics; basically heat transfer. Just like your body sweats to remove heat, these block transfer heat to the flowing water. In turn the water transfers heat to the radiator/heatexchanger and the fans cool the rads.

I know the block works, but I'm wondering how the water would flow if all those inlets and outlets are basically open. There is no "one" path for water to flow, like if you had them linked up in series. I'm not saying one of the two is better, I am just interested in how the water actually flows in parallel.

Its a parallel setup. Its the one I recommend (if possible). I did get some advise to avoid a series/serial setup with the 480s. Here's a simple diagram on how it works:

Basically, water enters all four blocks at the same time and exit at the same time.

Tried to fire up the pc and she doesn't post. Looks like it could be a ram issue. Possibly incompatibility since my ram isn't listed on Asrock's compatible ram list/guide. Well, I can return one kit but I'm stuck with the other kit which is past its 15 day return window frown.gif. This kit worked awesome on my EVGA 115 board. It starts and then shuts off immediately when I use any ram combination. I'm heading to Frys tomorrow to swap out the new kit and I'm hoping the compatible ram will fire this thing up.
