P5N32 -E SLI, should I stay all water once started?

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
Now iv cooled my E6600 I now have less air flow over the NB/SB and mosfet cooler. Do I continue to water cool these parts or go for after market cooling. I saw some cool threds in here as saw that the ThermalTake Extreme Spirit II was good fro the chipsets, but what about the mosfet? I have no air coming from the cpu cooler so will there be any heat issues?


Another point is noise. Iv gone water cooling because I want a quiet pc. I cant clock higher than 3ghz as it becomes unstable athought iv only raised the vcore and set the vtt to 1.5?

I would go all water. If you have the water in place you might as well use it.
Im planning a setup for my quad at the moment and organising the parts.
It watercools the NB and SB both sets of mosfets, CPU and 2 x 8800's.
Not all on the same loop obviously.

When you say not all on the same loop you mean 2 water cooling systems in one case?

Id be interested what blocks your looking at the for the mobo?

Here are a few sites in the UK that do watercooling.
www.watercoolinguk.co.uk
www.water-cooling.com
www.watercoolingshop.com
www.overclockers.co.uk
http://www.overclock.co.uk/

I would say get an aftermarket cooler for the SB and get a low flow restriction block for you NB

i haven't found any way to cool the mosfets with water cooling, and the southbridge might be a problem if you plan on having a GPU that covers it (like my 8800GTX).

cog, what SB block are you going to use that will fit inbetween the GFX and the south bridge? and what are you using to cool the mosfets?

Im using a single 7950 gx2 in the bottom PCIe slot, so its clear of the chipsets. I am using Audigy sound card in the PCI slot above the gfx card.

There is the EK blocks but hell man I cant afford to get 2 of them and a SB cooler plus a NB block.

Hi techy120 - I am in exactly the same boat!

Anything above 3GHz on a E6600 with a watercooled CPU block and it starts falling apart. I've had to screw a fan onto the NB heatsink, and positioned an Antec Coolspot fan over the mofsets since there's no airflow.

I've reached the same conclusion as well - I need to at least get the NB and GPU watercooled to cut down the heat in the case, and either w/c the left hand mofset bank, or replace it with another cooler.

Like you, I'm trying to cut down the fans in the system - I work from home and this is my work system as well as my gaming rig!

I shall follow this thread with interest!

@ DarkJedi.

Yes I just didnt think id have this issue as all my other pc builds just didnt get this hot, plus I had a water block on the SB on the socket A, and 939 systems. I dont want to add any un needed noise but then again I dont want to shed out another load of money right now.
