Crosshair V Formula-Z Chipset waterblock?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm about to order all the gits and doodads I need to drop my Crosshair V Formula-Z under water. I'm going to get this mosfet/VRM,s etc. under water, but there doesn't seem to be any chipset blocks on the market. I know Watercool has a chipset block included in their Crosshair V package but that just looks awful. I know I can just order that separate little square block separate, but again it just looks awful. Anyone know if there's any blocks that fit the Formula-Z Chipset? Needs to be fairly low profile, there's an R9 290X handing over it so yeah.

You really don't need one but you could use a universal chipset waterblock.

For anyone who cares




Gotta say im relieved it fits without obstructing anything. Doesn't fit with the stock heatsink, has just under 1mm of clearance with the waterblock


P.S. Sorry for the necro post, even though it's my own thread. wink.gif

The top couple are Crosshair III, they wouldn't fit. I saw the complete kit, but those are pretty ugly to be honest and I think I'd run into clearance issues with the threading on that. I wanted something really low profile with fitting close together so I could keep them from obstructing the expansion cards.

I'm sure they'd work okay, I just hate the way they look. You might run into clearance issue with the first PCI-E x16 lane, if you have a really long graphics card. The block I got is REALLY low profile, and even then had it been just a few mm higher my second PCI-e card might not have been able to seat properly. The Crosshair V boards are great. I actually had/have the non z version, I upgraded because eventually I'd like to akimbo R9 290xs for scrypt coin mining, and I need to fit a Nvidia card as a PPU and my good ol thunderbolt in 2 pci-e slots, which isn't going to happen on the Crosshair V non z since it has a PCI slot as opposed to PCI-E. Plus I got a really good price on my formula-z, and I can always sell my formula non z.

ROG connect has to be one of my favorite features, I can adjust the overclocking settings from my laptop while my computer is running, so I don't have to adjust it in the bios, boot, adjust, boot, etc. I can just boot, adjust until I make a mistake and it crashes, adjust in the bios to the stable setting, and repeat. Absolutely brilliant feature.
