Cooling VRM and MOSFET's for the CPU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I have a watercooling thread I started to ask some questions I could not find the answers to, and opne of my questions led to an answer that puts me here now.

Watercooling Thread

So, do the motherboard power delivery components on, say, an MSI A88XM-GAMING with a Kaveri A10-7850K, get hot enough with overclocking to warrant water cooling? Or would I be looking at a more aesthetic kind of thing?

Deepthought Build Log if anyone needs it. Component list and such.

yes, it will be silent if you set it up right.
ideal for media and studio applications as it has less fan noise to bleed.

So you're saying that water-cooling would be worth it?

Are you asking about watercooling the VRMs? Are there any waterblocks designed to fit on them? Adding a fan to cool the heatsink of an overheating VRM helps cool down temps so I feel that watercooling would be better than just a normal heatsink. Add a fan even with a waterblock and it still might improve VRM temps.

I was looking at universal blocks, there are no blocks specifically made for this board unfortunately. I was going to position a fan on the rear side of the motherboard blowing air onto the backside of the socket and power delivery components as well.
