eVGA 680i SB Waterblock?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is anyone able to recommend a waterblock for the evga 680i board southbridge? Most that I've looked at seem like they'd interfere with large cards in SLI :|.

Thanks in advance.

hmmm ... the southbridge shouldn't really need anything, but like you, I did put a block on mine. Primarily due to the heat-pipe configuration that I needed to remove.
Anyway, I would check out the EK-NB EVGA 680i block at Petras. It only specifies the NB but may be compatible with the SB. E-mail Petra and/or EK directly and you'll get a quick response. I'd e-mailed them about my P5N32-E board and got an answer from both within a day.

thermalright HR-05... works for 8800gtx SLI setup <---opps.. didn't see that you want a waterblock.

Swiftech MCW30 waterblock... works for 8800gtx SLI also

Meh. I read somewhere that it gets unusually hot, and since I'm already doing the NB, might as well. :]

Appreciate the fast responses. Taking a look at the Swiftech MCW30 and EK-NF4.

The NB does get unusually hot ... the SB hardly gets warm at all.

Even at 1700FSB my northbridge and southbridge were still in very safe temps... Not sure why you'd need a after market cooler for them on a 680i.

I thought they used the same heatsinks but I guess not

I think some folks are using this one:

I think an MCW30 will also work if you're watercooling the video card with a GPU only style block, but I think that EK give you a little better offsetting.

EK example:

MCW30 example

I'm currently using a Thermalright HR-05 SLI to cool my SB and an MCW30 for the NB. The SB doesn't need much cooling at all...the NB is the hot one.
