Cooling my VRMs?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So right now I have a single 240 CPU only loop. My CPU is completely OCed at 4.7GHz and 1.4V, it puts out a nice and toasty 70C on full load...
Due to this insane overclock my VRMs on my Asus P8Z77-V Premium also get hot. Is there a way to either get more airflow to them or watercool them? My case is a Arc Midi R2, I have the rad in top, two 140mm front intake fans (stock), 140mm rear exhaust (stock) and the Rad fans are 120mm Corsair SP120s.
Thanks!

I don't think anyone makes waterblocks for the Asus P8Z77-V board. You could have a fan blowing over the heatsinks, usually they would get airflow with an air cooler on the CPU but you're under water so they don't get any air movement over them.

I have the same problem with this case. Just use a small 80mm fan and it will make a huge difference.

Okay thanks guys! I guess I'll try a small fan. Any recommendations on placement and model?

Oh yes, someone does make blocks for this board! I have the P8Z77 V-Pro and I am cooling both the vrms and chipset with water...

http://shop.watercool.de/epages/WatercooleK.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/WatercooleK/Categories/Wasserk%C3%BChler/MB_Kuehler/Mainboard_Sets/%22Sockel%201155%22/ASUS

there you have everything you need, although a bit expensive but great quality!

A big plus is that you can buy new bottom plates for the blocks, so if you change board that doesn't mean that you have to buy a new set of blocks!

If you switched that rear exhaust fan to an intake you might have enough air movement over the heatsinks, should try it before you go out and buy a fan.

I put the top rad fans in push instead of pull and this seems to give it enough airflow, they don't burn my hands when I look at them anymore lol, running about 44C full load
