Another A8N32-SLI Deluxe question..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am currently using a Lain-Li case which places the mobo upside down with the proc located at the bottom. I read somewhere that using these cases with the A8N32 causes problems over time with the heat pipes on the nb and sb. Is this true or will there be no problems running it this way? I have thought about adding the nb to my wc setup and just placing a hsf on the sb anyways, I just may do it sooner than later if this is a problem.

I could see it as a problem since heat in the heatpipe needs to rise and since you have it upside down it's foricing it against the laws of physics and is actually collecting heat rather than disperising it.

If you WC it then it shouldnt be a problem

Thats what I was thinking. Guess I need to look into some waterblocks and hsfs. Any good suggestions? The board is being run with SLI so clearance is an issue with them.

Its definitely a problem. Asus even states that if you invert the heatpipe solution it will not work effectively. You could just remove the entire heatpipe assembly and mount a fan on the nb/sb. The Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe series uses a fan. Also, you would need a cpu fan cooling that cools the area (mosfets). The zalman 7700 is excellent at cooling the area around it. So watercooling isn't a necessity.
