G1.Assassin 2 WaterCooled?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, all i have a new rig that i am building and i want to watercool the motherboard. It is a G1.Assassin 2 LGA 2011 and i cant find a full cover waterblock even two seperate one for the VRMs and one for the chipset. Can anyone help me out? smile.gif

if you gotta have 'em, and nobody has them available, then you'll need
to get them custom made. which some cat on EVGA is making his
(CNC operator) own, says cost involved is $500+ (due to copper pricing)
i know you want to, but why? i havent heard of any VRM failures due to heat
or overclock... im the thought its like RAM coolers, awesome to look at,
but the performance and headache to plumb just isnt benefical.

Well i know that mobo blocks dont add anything but looks...But i want the looks!!! I dont want to pay 500 only for the looks i only want to know if anyone has put from other motherboards blocks that fit. I am thinking the ud7 block from EK but i dont think that it will fit...

Hi mate, not sure if this is a dead thread or not.

If you want to cool it you can use the EK NB-SB block for the chipset if you are only using the top and bottom GPU slots (other blocks will fit too i assume). The chip is far enough down on the board that the block will not get in the way of a gpu that is watercooled since they become only one slot with a waterblock compared to 2 or 3 with aircooling.

To do the VRMs was a bit more of a mission. I already had a couple of Koolance MVR-40 blocks so i used one of them with the 140mm heat transfer plate. This was the tricky part as i needed to cut 20mm off each end of the plate and then grind about a mm or so off each side to make it fit. Then to secure the block i put a screw through the holes near the end of the plate, cut one of the MVR clamps in half so it would cover the both the bolt through the heatplate and the motherboard and used the screw tops to fix it down.

I can agree that this was a rather piss poor expiation but i can post some pics if you want?

From what i hear the VRMs on x79 boards get pretty hot when you push the CPU hard so thats why i went through the effort. as I am hoping to get my 3820 to close to 5Ghz.

I wouldn't mind seeing pictures, as I am thinking of doing the same thing with my G1 Asassin 2
