Want to watercool Maximus V Formula Mobo+ CPU only using Corsair 600T

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
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.

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!

From what I've read the block that comes stock on the MVF is very restrictive and will mess with the flow of your loop. I would recommend either not integrating it into your loop or looking into the EK water blocks for your board. I have a MVE and I run it OC'd and folding 24/7 without water on the board

What is the difference between the Maximus V Formula and the Sabertooth Z77?
post #7 of 15
The Maximus is going to give you a couple more features that the Sabertooth does not have (ie. wifi, bluetooth) Performance wise they will be very close if not same..

What if I am willing to use any other case? I have a budget of 200 dollars for the casing. Is there any kit which will let me watercool the Maximus V formula using the stock block that comes with it and the CPU only? It would really look neat that is why I want to do it so bad. I am ready to be flexible with the casing if it looks a bit decent and is a bit tough.

Thanks for helping me out.

The case doesn't matter as long it can fit your watercooling loop. Have a look at this video where they put together a basic loop using a MVF..

If you're going to use the stock thermo fusion block on the MVF just make sure you're using a nice pump with a high flow rate.

Having the same dilemma, planning to add the thermal fusion thing to my loop in the future even invested in dual ddc 355 pump (highest head pressure)
however I dont see the point to watercool motherboard, heard it would only get the most benefit if you OC you CPU to 4.8ghz and above
but at the moment my temp is fine with 4.5ghz

regarding the case, if you are going to only cool the CPU + mobo, yes 240 rad is enough
and a mid tower is more than capable to hold 240 rad
any specific brand you are looking at?
maybe with corsair you can try the C70? its best if you do some research and come up with a couple of options and ask for advice from there

there are no kit that come with max V motherboard block
