So is this motherboard water-cooling ONLY? Is there a way to get it so that we can use it with an AIO cooler for the CPU but everything else is just air-cooled?
You'd probably want to wait on the release of thermals for that chipset cooler, but I'd think if you supplied the right AIO you might be able to cool both the cpu and the chipset using it. From what I've read, that cpu (W-3175X) does run hot though, especially when overclocked. It's also a pricey combo, I think upwards of 5Gs just for the MB and cpu.
Could make for one heck of a WS though. I've been thinking coupled at least with dual quadros (e.g., RTX 6000) and of course 128GB ecc ram.
