I spent months researching this, and despite getting resounding "NO"s from Gigabyte, EK, Mips, etc. they do fit.

I've got a spare UD7 mosfet block if anyone wants it for twenty quid smile.gif

Did you use the modified Koolance on your board? Or did you use the regular heat sink that comes with it? I'm trying to plan out my water loop and trying to decide if I want to add the MB into it.

Does the MB block limit the flow much?

I want to do GPU, CPU and MB in one loop.

The plan was Res > Pump > 240 Rad > GPU > 360 Rad > CPU > MB > Res

I have an i7 920, GTX470, and the UD3R motherboard block in a single loop (pump > GPU > Rad (EK Coolstream XT 120.3) > CPU > Mobo > Res > Pump)

It's a pretty low resistance block, I did see a small vortex trapping bubbles on the exit flow, but with cycling it seems to have sorted itself out.

I use the stock heatsinks for the mosfets, lapped, with AS5 on them.

Water tops out at ~35 degrees, GPU at 45, and CPU (cores) at a little over 60 under Linpack.

I use 3 Noctua NF-P12s on push, running at 1300RPM, with another 3 CM SickleFlow on pull at about 1100 RPM.

CPU is an i7 920 (D0 1.28v) @ 4.2Ghz (21x200).

If you still have that mosfet block for sale, contact me please, Is there any modifcations required to get it to fit the UD3R ??? I'm having similar problems getting this GA-X58A-UD3R under water, got a reply finally back from MIPS stating there mch-2068 multi chipset block cooler they make for the the UD7 will fit the UD3R without modding (visual conformation only) ...chipsets and mosfets are my only stumbling blocks
