Asus P5B-Plus Northbridge?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i just picked up a p5b-plus and am in the process of doing a build.... well the first thing i need to do is laser or plasma cut 2 waterblock adapters, i have a DD tdx block that i will use on the cpu (e6600) and a danger den block for the northbridge, but, i see the p5b-plus has no holes around the northbridge, they use a clip to hold the heatsink on...... will this clip, modified be strong enough to hold my northbridge block on? i would certainly like to hold it down with through hole bolts, but there arnt any holes!!!! and with the tension the hoses put on the block, im concerned the block wont make decent contact with the northbridge....

any suggestions?

all input is welcome, and appreciated.

Ehh, the clips are alright at best. Maintaining pressure is a PITA because it doesn't have enough pressure to keep it fixed to the base of the northbridge.
