    They look impressively well crafted.

    Have you had any real terms performance gain from going WC on the chipset? Maybe you can now push some things a little harder. I'm trying to think what's left on the "Northbridge" now the MCH is no more. I think it's PCIe isn't it? Maybe an OC of the PCIe bus or lower volts would work.

    Are you satisfied with the work/expense involved too? I'm sure that if temps were your main concern rather than extra over clocking, 8c is very pleasing to see.

    I'm asking as my Lynnfield i5/i7 (undecided yet) build next year will be a custom WC setup, probably single loop to start, so just the CPU. An adjustable 12V pump, good quality block and 360 rad (3 fan) is my dream, along with preferably a drive bay res, as long as there's no draw back to not using an internal res mounted on the case floor. Only problem I can maybe see with the bay res is possible rattling. Most cases 5.25" bay construction is a little "tinny" and things resonate a bit.

    I agree, your setup looks really good. It doesn't look cluttered and is clean and neat. Any difficulty you had with installing two 360 rads most certainly is not visible in the end result. Lovely stuff! What case are you using? I'm toying with the idea of getting a SilverStone Temjin TJ-07 and placing the 360 rad in the bottom, as it's the ideal location for a rad with the meshed side etc.

    The work involved was not that bad other than removing the mobo and breaking the wc down. Gains/cost is hard to call. The biggest reason for me to do the chipset cooling was bling. It did bring the northbridge temps down about 6-8c but there was a price incurred in heat load to the overall system - brought cpu temps up a couple of degrees.
    Since my main objective is heavy overclocking with a quiet system I would rate it as worth it.

    The whole project has been fun and educational. The case is a Coolermaster ATCS 840 and it is really great - superior quality and great design. I had several lian lis prior to this and I find the coolermaster superior.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Nice! Please DO let me know when he tells you a price! If it is more than the EK set I may just have to get an EK Set. Where does he live anyway? That will likely jack up the price for us as well if we live in a different country

    Well, I bricked my UD4P . Due to other problems I have decided to replace it with an Asus P6T Deluxe. That means I no longer have a use for my EK-FB KIT GA X58 (Gigabyte) for Gigabyte X58 Motherboard (this is the clear version).
    If anyone is interested I will sell it for a really good price. PM me for details.

    Bricked it? You sure? How did you do it, and how are you sure it is done for?

    PM Sent as well

    I'll post here when i get confimation. I think Emir lives in Turkey?? Surely the prices cannot be higher than the ek setup, cause you can get the nb/sb block seperatly from Emir...

    Sorry to hear about your board genec, been havin nic issues with mine, so i ordered a Intel gigabit pci-e nic for it, that oughta solve those issues....
