Water cooled AMD mother boards

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi there I have been looking all over the net for a good AM3 mother board for the wet stuff.
I have found load for Intel but am having a real bad time trying to find a AM3 board that I can get a full water block for I did see a sabertooth 990fx and have been locking for it (with no luck) If one of you can help I'd be most grateful for the info

EK no longer has nickel plating issues, it was blow totally out of proportion too. All my EK blocks are nickel plated, even my mobo block which is the supposedly "bad plating" and i have yet to see any flaking or discoloration. The biggest issue with nickel plating is Silver, as it increases Galvanic corrosion within the block.

Here's a link:

Simple solution is to not use silver.

I have just finished reading the report and found that was very good and as I plan to have a full copper system and that I can't use all copper (rad) I will have to rethink about it
also I am thinking about changing the color of the mobo heat sink top as they all come in black and I want a eye popping board . I was thinking red and yellow will look good;) and than'k the the link thumb.gif
