Gigabyte OC Force Water block + G1.Sniper 5

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Will the OC Force water block fit the G1.Sniper 5 board?

Comparing both boards from pictures online it seems both of the boards use the same mounting locations for the stock cooling solution.

I myself would prefer the G1.Sniper 5 for the audio solution over the OC but would like to have a fanless motherboard cooling solution. I prefer to water cool and dislike the G1.Sniper 5 stock setup.

Comparing the boards with the top down view I can notice some slight differences but it doesn't seem to be where the stock chipset heatsinks are located.

Looking at the back view of the motherboards and quickly switching back and forth between them it looks like the screws are in slightly different areas.

I think you are right. They seem to be identical just shifted a couple of millimeters.
The left side of the pic tells the story.
The 8 silver dots by the upper left screw show the difference clearly.

Well, thanks for taking the time to study the pics. Off to do more research.
