I'm thinking not much demand for water cooling on AMD boards. I mean, how many Intel boards have Koolance coolers? Looks like several! And not 1 AMD?
I wonder what the initial cost for Koolance is on a full board cooler? I'd certainly buy a formula III one, bambi you might, kunckles, plus a few others seems like it could make it happen.


There are several AMD systems with Koolance coolers. They just have to use standard blocks which aren't a lot of fun to work with. I will be posting new pics of my 3 loop AMD system soon.

YES! An AMD MB cooler from Koolance, and just the one I need too! Can anyone tell me how thick the South Bridge section is? Can you still utilize the top PCIE slot on the Crosshair Formula III?

I don't have one yet, but I would bet good money that it would allow you to use the PCI-E slots. Otherwise, what's the point???

It is next on my "to buy" list. I hope this upcoming payday I will be able to get it.
