Water cooling.. options, advise please.

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Sorry if I have posted this thread incorrectly in advance.

I am having trouble trying to find water blocks that will for sure fit my MOSFET's and my north bridge. My motherboard is an Asus M4N72-E, my goal is to get my CPU, a Phenom II x4 940 BE to reach as high as clock possible on the motherboard (stable, of coarse). Although I have been looking, my list comes up short:

http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=660

or

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/82...0c89s147#blank

for the MOSFET's and

http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=662

for my north bridge.

Again my concern is, do you think they will fit (I don't Believe Koolance's website about MVR-40 because the stock heat sink seems longer) the holes on my motherboard, and cool the hot spots well, while I over clock my CPU?

Also, could anyone tell me if the Black Ice GTX Xtreme 360 would be enough to cool all three spots, or should I add a Black Ice GTX Xtreme 240 (or something smaller) to cope with all the heat from the MOSFET's and north bridge at higher clocks?

Along with all of this, could someone please further explain to me how to tell what pump and fans I should look for to use with the equipment above? I don't want to buy a crappy pump, or set of fans because I couldn't properly determine what to look for.

Thanks for any advise or help in advance.

per the Koolance configurator, the mvr40 for the mosfet and the ch-122 for the nb.

For the mvr-40, you have to measure the thermal pad from the stock vrm heatsink, find a heatplate that is close to that length.

good luck

Alright, thanks for the information.

Still lost on what "set up" I should be getting to properly cool everything though, anyone? I do understand more then I have already posted, as in I need higher RPM fans for the GTX 360, but the website I look at for 120mm fans don't tell you what RPM they are , I'm lost. Also how can I tell what pump to get for all of this?

get an XSPC rasa kit, the RS240 starts at $129 and you just need to get some extra barbs for the mb blocks you'll be adding. Your gpu is not in any dire need to get wet, so you can run stock on that one. The Rasa kits also come with a choice of the thick RX240, the bigger RS360 or the big boy RX360.

I've though about this. But would you know if it CAN cool everything I have mentioned above on a permanent over clock? I just don't want to have my loop burn out, and it does get really hot and humid where I live.

a 240 is more than enough for cpu and the mb.

Alright, thank you. I'll consider it again.

np, if you want a bit more head room go w/ the RX240 kit, just in case if you get a high performance gpu in the future.

To be honest, this system is never going to be upgraded. All I do on this is play Aion ATM. I have made a CPU loop before with a 120 dual "B.I.X" rad on a 9950 BE and it felt like it barley could cut 3.0 with decent temps on another computer I used to play games on. I'm not to quick to jump on the kit you suggested just yet. Since I don't have a budget I would love to get the best I can for my motherboard and CPU. If I need to push my GPU I'd still keep it on air(after market), or buy a new one. I'll have to look up all the reviews I can find on the XSPC Rasa 750. I'm hoping to be able to reach 4.0 on my current CPU. Ahh, dreams. lol And I don't mean to sound rude if I did, sorry if I do. I do appreciate you commenting in this thread.

technically its a pieced custom loop, all the parts they include in the kit are available separately, somewhat the same as the swiftech kits but cheaper and the cpu block performs really good.
