Who Agrees With Me? ASUS Maximus V Formula Cooling

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody, me again.

I was wondering if any of you have seen the preview of the upcoming Maximus V Formula Board from ASUS.

281

I was wondering if any of you would agree with me on this. The thing is, I would like to eventually do a build with this beast looking board, with a full watercooling setup and possibly dual 7970's. The barbs that are present on the Power Delivery Heatsink is what I don't agree with. Who thinks that ASUS should change the design and instead have G1/4" Threaded holes in place so we can choose our own desired fittings? And if you don't use the Watercooling, include stoppers with the Motherboard?

Thanks for your time guys and girls tongue.gif

And what if the water pipe is made of aluminium? That could cause issues for some people too. Asus should have just let the fusion waterblock thing go and leave all the waterblock work to someone like EK smile.gif

What if it was made by EK???

haha just kidding. Totally agree on using G1/4 threading so the end user can opt their fittings. Those barbs don't even seem to match any fittings I've seen.

Well, I found out on one of the preview websites that the tube is made of copper, so most people dont need to worry about the odd metal out in their loop, and no oxidization happening. But they still haven't actually told us the size of the barbs and the inside of the tube yet. They do look restrictive-ly small, if thats even a word tongue.gif

It would be pretty stupid of them to have preinstalled non-switchable barbs, but it might be for an asus-partnered water kit or something frown.gif
post #8 of 10
they are 3/8" barbs...let me check for a source, but i read it somewhere
and 3/8" works perfectly for me, but I would like G1/4 also

Hello,

I am planning to buy an Intel i7 3770k processor and planning to use the Maximus V Formula Motherboard in a Corsair 600T.

And I want to watercool both the processor and motherboard only to make it overclock proof. Even though Watercooling the motherboard is not that necessary, I do want to watercool it for the looks.

I am a complete newbie at Water Cooling and would very much appreciate some help regarding it and what kit would be the best for me in this situation. I do not look forward to mod my 600T for this purpose. I was planning to buy XS PC RayStorm 750 RX240 WaterCooling Kit but I am not sure if it will fit the 600T or if it will be enough to cool the mobo and CPU.

Any kind of help would be very much appreciated .

Thank you!

a G1/4" would be much better because you can use any fittings and wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to manufacture?
