Nicely implemented cooling solution. Obviously done in a professional manner with great results! Look forward to seeing more in the future...

Well I am super happy with the MB mod and damn do I ever appreciate the feedback from everybody?! I'm not totally happy with my case though at this point. I'll be ordering a larger tower so I can make some more room for water cooling. I've got a lot more research to do before I decide on which pump, block, tubing, fittings, etc I'll be purchasing, so this is all going to be a few weeks out.

Nice work. I did a similar mod on my old 780i. I just cut the MCP plate and heat pipe off to install an HR-05 sli IFX. Got similar temps afterwards too.

Thank you.

Does that 780i MB still boot up? I'm surprised you didn't fry that SPP chip because it relies at least partially on that heat pipe you cut off to cool it as it runs through the bottom of that large NB heat sink and continues along the RAM side of the CPU all the way around the top of the MB to aid in the cooling of those upper most mosfets. At the very least, it would have severely jeapardized the overclocking potential of that board.

Awwh shucks... I just wanted to keep the stock cooling because I really like the way it looks. When I 1st started doing these mods, I just happened to be reading about lapping and sorts and it just made sense to go this route.

What do you think the results would be if you simply cut off the part that you ground down and placed the same heat sink directly onto the chip?
