Waste of parts, effort, and added restriction to watercool the ICH10R southbridge when almost any small passive sink will be more than sufficient.

If everything is cleaned properly before assembly, you shouldn't need a filter in the loop. Might be useful for catching flakes of nickel or chrome from a bad plating job, but I'd avoid such iffy components in the first place.

If I don't need to cool the southbridge then I will skip it for now. I have some adhesive heatsinks I could throw on there.

As for filters, their main effect seems to be to restrict flow, I would advise to clean your rads thoroughly before installing and keep the filter away from the loop.

Unfortunately I am using several HDDs and cannot ditch the bay.

Did your board not come with the Classified heat sinks on the NB and SB?

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Has the large heatsink on the x58 chipset and then the smaller one on the southbridge but its all connected via heatpipes. So, if i'm cooling the chipset i have to figure something out for the southbridge.

Honestly, the thing doesn't even need a heatsink.

It's rated to operate at up to 109C and only puts out 4.5W of heat at maximum load, with more typical power consumption/dissipation in the 2-3W range. The motherboard PCB itself will provide all the cooling it needs the overwhelming majority of the time and most heatsinks attached to it on most boards are either redundant, or are actually extra cooling for the IOH/MCH, not the SB itself.

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/do...guidelines.pdf -- page 10, for reference.

If you want some extra peace of mind, the adhesive heatsinks you mention should be plenty.

Alright, with that info, I'll stick to just putting a block on the x58 chipset and an adhesive heatsink on the SB. Thanks!


Because this is a watercooled PC I do want to ditch the huge x58 heatsink. Lol


FWIW my board is the e760 variant.

Flow direction isn't that crucial as you really just want to make sure there isn't so much restriction that the water can't make it back to the pump. As well, it doesn't matter if your radiator comes before or after a component that generates heat. As your coolant will hit equilibrium rather quickly.

What you need to consider, and maybe I missed it in one of the comments, is where & how you will fill and empty your loop. This is the only crucial item you need to address in terms of layout . Having your reservoir or fill port feeding directly into your pump will typically solve this.

This will ensure while you are bleeding the system, you always have a way of introducing water into the pump. The rest is up to you. As you mentioned, you are trying to reduce the amount of tubing runs as possible. So in which ever way that works out, is fine. Just keep in mind the following:

• How am I going to be filling the loop?
• How will I be draining the loop?
• How will I be bleeding the loop?
