What mvr heat plate to use for M4A78T-E

Postby spiceman12 » Thu Feb 04, 2010 9:00 pm

hi, this is my first post, and am kind of new to watercooling. my previous expericence in watercooling is my xbox 360, i use the kit (xb360bk-sys)offered by koolance with no problem,my 360 has been liquid cooled for 2 years. this is my first venture into water cooling a p.c. The mobo am using is the Asus M4A78T-E. I am seeking advice and any help as the choice of components i can use. my plans are;

KIT-1000BK
CPU-350AT
HD-57
2 CHC-125
GPU-220

I am not sure what heat plate to use with the MVR-100, if any one has done this mobo i will certainly appreciate your help.
Much thanks to all.

Measure the mosfet's from end to end and that will let you know what heat plate you will need. The CHC-125 and CHC-122 should be what you need for your MB and SB. If your going with the CPU-350 I suggest using a 13mm loop as that block is extremely restrictive.

If you need any help ordering or installing, PM me or visit my store on eBay. You can find the link to our store on Koolance's reseller page.

You should think about going with one of the new 360 blocks since they are supposedly less restrictive.
My board is an Asus Crosshair II so it uses the Nvidia chipset but I think the layout is nearly identical. The product wizard for both our boards shows to use the MVR-40 but I measured it, then chose the MVR-100 for the longer block. I mounted it to the 140mm heat transfer plate (MVR-PLT140). This configuration gave me a maximum amount of cooling while still fitting cleanly. Initially the block leaned towards the CPU since the mounts were all on the same size. However, I ended up using one of my motherboard's stand-offs on the other side to help level it out. It seems to me that it would do this if I had used the suggested blocks.

I used the:
CPU-350AC
CHC-122 (x2)
MVR-100

Here's mine if you want to check it out for ideas: http://forums.koolance.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=49&start=30#p4234

2 CHC-122
MVR-100
AMD 955BE, 6 250gb in RAID0, 8GB OCZ Flex 1200, 2 EVGA GTX295 FTW's. Loop 1: CPU & quad GPU's. Loop 2: PS to 120mm to NB/SB/Vreg's to dual 80mm rad/fans
