Modding the Sabertooth

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Has anyone had any success in taking the plastic, black "ricer" pieces off of this motherboard to implement a water block? I am on the 1150 z87 version of this board. Luckily for me I managed to score it for 50% off at a local store, but it looks like I may have to pay full price for a proper motherboard after all, if these things are going to get in the way.

I have the same setup and I'm piecing together a water system. Looks like the plastic can stay if you ask me. I saw a ton of vids on youtube with the plastic intact.

Havent found any full waterblock kits for the board anyway.
