do you think it needs it? whats the temperature of the nb? if theres no sensor, try and use a multimeter with a temperature meter.

some boards need it
some really dont

my gigabyte ud3 and ud5 boards needed it

I knew because if I didnt have a small fan blowing directly on the heatsinks it would blue screen within 30 minutes and if you put you hand in the case with no fan on them you could tell where all the heat was coming from

I don't think the r3 series mobos by asus need em unless you are going for looks or extremely high ocs. I don't use one on my r3e and my temps are great and stable.

oh no, the north bridges of both r3e and r3f do need to be watercooled

Just go for a NB water block if you can't find a full block. The only difference is a full block has a SB and VRM also. If you just have issues with your NB just get that. VRM cooling does help if you're pushing the voltage. Never had a High SB temp though....

Heard Danger den has some great NB waterblocks.

I have a R3E mother board and had high temps on my NB so I had a choice of either redoing pulling it apart and applying new TIM or to go with water cooling

I went with the EK full block and it works great
