I am looking into getting a chipset waterblock, and probably GPU one as well and am a little torn between the Enzotech and MCW30.
I'm surprised you didn't flash to a Rampage BIOS, seemed a little more logical to work with, despite the massive amount of available options.
I am using the Enzotech block which I bought from someone here. In retrospect, I would probably go with the MCW30 since it is less restrictive. I did some quick estimates on the cross-section of the EnzoTech block and it seemed a bit low.
Anyways, my X38 loaded temps with reapplied TIM, stock HS, and fan was around 50C. The temps with the waterblock is around 42C. More importantly, the area around the motherboard is much cooler.
