Not to mention leaks are only a problem who rush and don't leak test.

As someone else suggested, I would advise against mother board cooling; it won't help your over clock.
You WILL get better temps, no doubt about that. However, that does not mean you will be able to OC higher, even with a custom loop I was only able to hit 4.3 on my phenom.

You're tubing will fit, you can stretch it like SaltWaterCooled or buy the exact size barbs you need. You will also have to order Silver Killcoil or Pt-nuke.
I prefer the stretched tubing over the size-matched because I had issues with clamps not sealing the tube effectively, most likely it was operator error, but the clampless look is sleek and very secure, so no complaints here

I have my block fully underwater and I'm a proponent, though it obviously has its financial downsides. I picked up my blocks for about $15 each on clearance (only had to pay full price for the NB/SB block) advantage to being a late-adopter of 775 haha. I got them about 18 months ago now and it's been great. I like the added stability since I'm pushing alot of voltage for my OC and the NV chipsets are notoriously hot. The blocks keep everything chilly and stable for me. It really depends on the board though, some are cool and really don't need it, others with SLI or high OCs may want it due to increased usage and heat.

Don't get me wrong, it looks amazing. I would throw my mobo under water, if I had the spare cash and if they made 'em for mine heh. For the average user, they are unnecessary though IMO.

Yeah, I'd agree with that. Especially with newer boards. Some though, like an SR-2 or whatever may need the extra cooling, your average board is pretty much set though on stock cooling.

That said, I love having my board underwater, and I was lucky to find deals on the blocks.

790i = toasty though, and I doubt I would be comfortably where I am now without it being underwater, and I'm positive my NB wouldn't be loading to 33C

So with the RASA kit you guys don't think I'd be able to OC over 4.5Ghz CPU and 3.0 NB? I was hoping for something like 4.8 CPU and 3.3 NB, but I don't want to get my hopes up. And I really want to get at least the NB block, if that means forget about the MOSFET AND SB than so be it, especially if it won't help much.

While the bigger radiator certainly does help, it is by no means the only factor. A full custom loop with a 120mm radiator can still easily get 10C+ lower temperatures than an H50/70.

4.5 would be stretching it, 4.8 would be highly unlikely. This is of course using what is considered safe voltage for 24/7. You will hit the wall of your chip before your temperatures hold you back.

4.8 may be asking a little too much out of a Thuban, you should be able to hit 4.5 no problem though. It just depends how much voltage you wanna pump through it and what your temps look like. If you can keep your load temps under ~52C then you should stay stable at high clocks

Here is what watercooling will do you for:

-Hit 4.4-4.5 GHz
-no idea on the NB, but definitely faster by a bit
-Much quieter, you could easily use 1150 RPM GentleTyphoons and still get great temperatures.
-Lower load temperatures

Gotcha, well lower temps would make me happy as well, even with a 4.4Ghz OC and 3.2NB as long as I don't load at 55C CPU and 77C NB.

so the G1/4" to 1/2" barbs x6 that come with the RASA kit I can just use those with this NB block
