Can i use this mosfet block to cool my VRMs?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, was wondering if i could use this :

http://koolance.com/mvr-40-motherboard-vreg-water-block (paired with one of those plates 72mm x 16mm)

to cool the VRMs of my EVGA 670 FTW



it is a universal block, so i could somehow make it screw onto the PCB holes using the universal mounts?

I am a little short on money and cant include a full block for my GPU (for now) but i can include this cheap universal block to cool my VRMs, and use an h100i + dwood bracket to cool the GPU temporarily.

Is this possible ? I remember someone using these to cool the VRM's of their 560ti 448, so was wondering if it could be applied to this card as well?

I figured... if i got a full block for my video card; i could at least reuse this block to cool something on my motherboard (as id need universal blocks for it -- none designed specifically for my board).

If you can prove to me why it will fit, or wont fit; i will provide rep for the extra effort. Thank you so much!!! thumb.gif

You'd be better of with little heat sinks, just in case it doesn't fit.
I don't see it fitting at all, unless you modified the PCB which will damage the card in the process, you might be able to hold it down using zipties and that is extremely unlikely but could work.

I personally would go with heat sinks or a full water block, because these will look damn ugly by itself.

I will be modding a housing so that you will not even see the block, so looks is not a problem. To me it look like it might work? Dont you think? Like if i were to put the block right on the edge of the PCB hole on the left and right side of it.... and then have universal bracket should line up with the PCB hole to mount it, right?

I wonder what else anyone can say about this...

I don't know you can always buy it and check lengths etc... but i have a feeling it might need modding of some sort.

it has the size of it here so you could check to see how it would fit

What if i used a thin copper shim that would cover all three rows, using pads on the side of the vrms and possibly TIM on the part to the block ?

Would that application be possible if i did a little modding ? (pretty much just cutting the copper shim to dimension)
