Mobo cooling for an M2N32-SLI

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well I've been searching and I don't want to mess up with my purchase. I searched the forums but you look for this mobo and it seems it is almost NEVER used.

Anywho, I want to find out what people have used to successfully cool their MOSFETS and chips on their ASUS M2N32-SLI boards.

I'd like to have a 1/2" barb on things and clear the 8800 series graphics cards. Lemme know if you've had any luck and what you used. A link would rock. Thanks guys!

for the chipsets i used Swiftech MCW30 chipset water blocks. the nb block has to be modified to clear a small capacitor on the board...very simple though....also...because im going to be running sli in the near future...i had to take into consideration the sb block position...the way i have it mounted now wont work with the lower video card but when i was assembling i did find a way to make it work but theres no sense to do it now as i dont have enough $$$ for the extra 8800 gtx. also...for the nb block to clear the top video card...the Swiftech hard mount kit had to be used... hope some of this helps.

I put a good Swifty NB cooler and fans on the rest...I drilled holes in the back of the mobo tray and put fans on the back of the CPU, ram and Volt reg..I made some little brackets out of scrap aluminum and hung some fans over the ram and volt reg....There is no need to WC any of that...

I had a Swiftech nb block on my ECS board, but for some reason would never stay down on the chip. So, I believe it burned up somehow, and now I am about to be the proud owner of an eVGA 680i SE board! Needless to say, that block will be off my mobo forever.

i dont know exactly how you mounted it... but when properly mounted , there's no way it can "slip"off...did you try the hard mount method ?
