Which MSI RAM is this that you're talking about?

Oh. It overclocks like crap to be honest, get the one rated at the speed you want, don't buy 1600 thinking you can even get to 1866. There is a reason why its cheaper than the similar kits from other brands while having cool lights and heatsink. thumb.gif (Not hating, I have some. Its bottom barrel RAM though with a cool heat spreader.)

Hello everyone!

I just got the Mpower Z77 board, and I am currently looking at water cooling for it. I have an aging Q6600 system, meaning a LGA 775 mounting style. I got into water cooling a long time ago and got myself an Apooge GT for LGA 775 and it has worked well for me over these years, but now that I am jumping not only to a much faster processor (yey!) but as well as changing from LGA 775 to 1155. I am not to eager to get a new water block considering my current one is doing so well, so I was searching online at the mounting holes but did not find much information.

In short, does this motherboard have mounting holes which can be used with a LGA 775 block? If not, then any suggestions for a conversion kit thing so I can mount my Apooge GT onto 1155? There are brackets for the Apogee GT for 1366, so does the motherboard possibly have any holes meant for 1366 mounting?

Cannot wait to join the club! smile.gif

LGA 1155 has different hole spacing than LGA 775 so it will not work.


I think the Swiftech Apogee GT 1366 adapter plate could be modded to work though.

Here is what I would do.


1. You will need a good S1155 back plate. I am using a EK-LGA115X TRUE Backplate with my Mpower and it works well with my DT SNIPER water block. I highly recommend it

2. You will need the Swiftech Apogee GT LGA1366 Bracket AP-GT-CI7 part.


Once you get the parts take Swiftech Apogee GT LGA1366 Bracket AP-GT-CI7 part and place the EK-LGA115X directly on the center of it. Make sure it is dead center. You will see where the S1155 holes need to go. Take a marker and mark you holes for S1155 offset spacing from the S1366 holes and then carefully drill some new holes. Take your time and don't bend or ruin anything. Not sure if you will have enough room for 2 separate holes or make 1 large elongated hole that could be used for S1366 or S1155.

S1366 hole spacing is 80mm and S1155 is 75mm.


Can be bought below.

For mounting hardware I would go with some M4 screw.

I set my mount screws up like this.




You can use some springs,washers, and nuts (M4 to match bolt) to tighten it down. I like to use non conductive rubber washers as well against the MB for protection and a little flex.


Some food for thought. Good luck.

Well i would at least try it - memory clocking is different from setup to setup - since some CPUs have strong IMCs and others have weak ones. definitely try it out and let us know smile.gif This is the case with CPU clocking as well - the IB CPUs are not all "cut from the same cloth"

LOL - how many times over the past ___ years has that happened to me - software versions and software interfering with another piece of software.
