Normally I use my own type of mounting systems instead of the factory. I have a variety of methods to accomplish things. Here is an example:

The block uses the same 2 factory holes, but also utilizes the CPU holes as well. Various spacers, or a spring can keep pressure on the block.

Have you worked out where the inlet/outlet will be on the chipset block?

Something hit me like a ton of bricks after staring at it, but in a good way. I could also use the almost naturally forming inlets by the PCI slots, but it would be dependent on you now HAVE to watercool your video card, and it depends on the thickness of gpu waterblocks. Although, if your cooling your chipset, your most likely going to have GPU waterblocks already... but one just never knows.

But as you see the picture they will be on the right sides, by the RAM.

This is a Koolance block on the SRX board:



See that large gap of thread? Picture that thread going through the VR block. Then either a plastic spacer, or a spring keeping it down along with the CPU bolt.

I think I get it. As long as the VRM block allows the CPU block to come down into contact with the IHS still. I'm assuming the VRM block will be very think at the CPU bolt hole section?

Should be fine with the Kryos mounting system.

I thought about this too, but you wouldn't be able to tighten or clamp the hose because the video cards would have to already be in their slots and you cannot fit your hand between two PCBs even if they are only single-wide with a full PCI-E slot between them. What's more, if the water block took up only a single PCI-E slot, there would be exactly 3/4" between the block and the next PCB, which means your hose would be rubbing and pushing the cards if they had anything sticking out on the top of the PCB (like a back plate) or if the waterblock were slightly more than 1 PCI-E width.

If you are thinking about that, I'm thinking my suggestion for the area between the first PCI-E slot and the CPU makes more sense. Especially if you are able to capitalize by using the mounting screw holes for the CPU block. And you wouldn't get any interference of having to go between graphics cards. All you'd have to be careful of is the molex power input for the PCI-slots located there.

Is it possible to attach the two blocks together somehow...so there is only 1 inlet/outlet? Maybe like I've crudely drawn below?
