NP I suppose, though it didn't help you much. lol

One of these might fit it, I don't know the stock heat sink specs.

I ordered this MB and am liking the water block. Just have to see
if they have a heat plate that has the same base size as the stock
heat sink.

I'm not an expert, but I don't think you would need a very big set up if your only going to water cool your V-regs. But, if I where going to cool those I would water cool the CPU as well. If you don't want to spend the money and time to do that I would just stick with a better passive heat sink.

After looking around online for aftermarket mosfet and V-reg heatsinks I couldn't find any that would fit this motherboard. As well as the koolance block, or any other water block I saw. If anyone already knows ANY better cooling solutions then the stock blocks on this motherboard that FITS pls post it. We'd greatly appreciate it
