EK Mosfet Water Block Thoughts

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was looking for something for my mofsets. They don't list these as working with the P5K-D. You guys think they might? My HR-S gets here today for the left of my cpu and I'm using the stock one for the ones above my cpu.

Mine get pretty freakin hot.

If they'll work for my board then I would setup a seperate loop. Prolly put my NB and mofsets on there, and then leave the cpu on it's own loop.

Thoughts?

Transistor are designed to withstand the heat. In lab, I have burnt myself enough times on them to know. Don't bother watercooling MOSFETs ever. Just make sure they get some airflow.

Depends if you are 'going all out' or not I guess.

On a functional level DuckieHo is probably right.

Duckie is prolly right. I'm just gonna order another Thermalright for the mofsets above the cpu and call it good.

If I think those are getting too hot I will have to figure something else out.

I say don't even bother. They are designed to operate at least to 100C. "Too hot" is a relative term. You won't gain anything from cooling them.

If your really worried about them put a fan blowing on them on the back-side that the best place to cool your volt. regs...I put little fans on the back of my mobo blowing on the back of the cpu,ram and volt.. regs..Almost missed the cpu though...

yup they are really no use, although i ordered 2 of the EK ones LOL, just because i want to add more to my second loop. Im adding a second loop with my GTS 640 in it, and thought it would such a waist with just my GPU in there, so i just added 2 MOFSETS, the NB and then the GPU.
And the second loop has a MCR320 rad and 655 pump. Had those extra.

This board is kinda crazy actually. There are 8 more mofsets on the back of the PCB as well... Kinda odd.

I'll put a picture and you guys tell me if you think i need extra fans or not. I'll update in 5 min with the pic.



Basically you can see the one standalone mofset cooler that came with the board not attached to any heat pipes. To the left you see where I have the tiny swiftechs. I am going to replace both with Thermalright HR-09Ss. I will have the top fan and the back fan both exhausting pulling the air from the intake on the front of the tower straight through. I think it should move a good amount of air through both coolers. Think i am good to go?

I was wanting to order some of those HR mosfet coolers but, was a little scared they wouldn't fit so I ordered the swiftech MC-21 heatsinks instead. Would like to see them mounted and hear your results, please post pics when installed
