Ok so i have a asrock fatal1ty 990fx killer series motherboard and the northbridge heatsink runs hot about 75 celcious at idle, so i put a fan on it and it drops it some but it looks stupid and its rigged and i dont like that so id like to watercool it. What do i need to do that i see they make northbridge water blocks on ebay, ive only ever ran sealed units like my corsair h100i for the cpu, any help would be great thanks

You can get that block off of eBay also here's a video on how to make your own water cooling loop for beginners https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwi08p3NuYTKAhVFZCYKHR2KBuEQFggfMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Flifehacker.com%2F5940236%2Fa-beginners-guide-to-water-cooling-your-computer&usg=AFQjCNEOoAEu_gh53ahizdtZpGvaicG3eQ&sig2=MSSBK9pRjtY5RHAiX-REzw&bvm=bv.110151844,d.eWE

Heres a tip: let the leak test run for 24hrs and if you can get a kit like the EK L240 water cooling kit and pick up some more fittings.https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-kit-l240-1
The advantage of starting with a kit is that you dont have to worry about tube size, pump, fitting, and blocks. just make sure to pick up some extra EK-ACF Fitting 10/16mm Nickel fittings to add the block to your north bridge. You will have plenty of tube to add the block. Double check that the block you get is Nickel you dont want to mix metals!

You would need a custom loop or break up the existing CLC unit for adding the north-bridge block. I would suggest going for a custom loop starter kit + NB block and couple of fittings for it. Because CLC units often use aluminum parts and if you use copper block you might get galvanic corrosion. Then again cheap ebay blocks and rads are often aluminum as well.

You will need something like this: (note that this NB block is on gfx card not on motherboard at the photo).
