nVentiv Mach II Conversion Kit

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I work in a shop and a customer has brought in a nVentiv Mach II and wants us to try to convert it over to LGA1156. Has anyone here seen any conversion kits, or has anyone made a custom conversion for this setup.

Thanks

Not sure of that brand can you show a picture?
If it has the square evap then your going to want to at a min replace the evap.

Also what size compressor?

I've seen the units before and actually considered purchasing one myself (from CL). My initial impression of it was that I'd have to manually drill holes to make it fit myself. Saw someone on XS do just that, albeit for a different socket.

You can always pick up some 1/4" aluminum plate stock, drill holes to mount it to existing holes, and new holes for mounting bolts. That'd be the easiest way I'd think.

Here are a few pictures of the unit. At this time Im thinking im going to have to have a block of aluminum machined to fit the underside of the mainboard and then drill holes, still not sure what Im going to do about the top part.

Waste of time and money, that thing won't be of any real use in stock form and especially with the stock EVAP which is terrible.

The Mach II and the Mach II GT in stock form are only any good for clocking single and dual core cpu's.
If your clocking a quad core or hex core, the unit will crash as it simply does not have the capacity to hold the full load from these cpu's.
They can be modded to handle a quad core, but the cost makes it a rather silly thing to do. It would actually be cheaper to have a unit made for you than to buy and convert a Mach II.
