I have two hdd in 0...and my sb temps usually are 1 or 2 degrees hotter than the nb...as the nb is fusion wc'd. I will need in the future to buy two wc blocks.
One for the north & another for the south as the Maximus northbride wc block is one piece. In order for sb wc'ing I need to remove it.
The trick is to buy universal wc blocks...so that in the future they can fit onto new mbs' and be used for yrs instead of the 18months or less between new mb designs.
Same goes for graphics card water blocks...one of the reason that I have not yet bought two 3870X2 water blocks...seeing as how the new 4870X2s' are about to come out shortly after the 4000 series release later this month.
While the 4870X2 will still have only 2-cores like the 3870X2...the components on the board maybe so different that one would have to cut a 3870X2 waterblock in order for it to fit(not good).
