MSI X58 Eclipse SLI SouthBridge chip & Koolance CHC-122

MSI X58 Eclipse SouthBridge and CHC-122

it happens that the holes in the board are too close, the chc-122 fits, but not the mounting hardware.
so i figured that if i remove the mounting arms from the mounting o-ring,
and drill with 5/32 the holes in the mounting o-ring closer to the inner hole,
works! and fits like a globe.
also drilling the mounting o-ring could work for the northbridge chip but the opposite way, drilling to the outside of the mounting o-ring.
...
the second issue/problem is that southbridge chip is too close to the first 16x PCE-e slot in the board.
it works with sapphire hd4650 but i dont know if chc-122 would work with longer pcie video cards.

i dont need powerful video card, i need 2x pci soundcards, its not a big issue for me,
but always hated that the video card heats the southbridge chip.. i noticed that with my last pc, asus p5w dh deluxe with thermaltake extreme spirit 2 copper cooler that had a verry nosy fan and had to leave it unpluged.
...

the automatic fan speed in that video card its a bad joke,
the video card crashed the pc when temperature is near 60°
and fan speed shuts down when temperature is near 36°
also dont know if koolance hd4670 works with hd4650, so i decided to purchase the thermaltake w2 cl-0088

made a YouTube video, but did not included the chc-122 mounting hardware modification.
maybe i make a 2nd video.

temperatures after the moddification with a clean boot,
are 14° 25° 23°
when system warms up, temps. are cpu 14° NB 25° SB 26°

hope that helps.
i love MSI Boards with DrMos technology

patience,
standard 400w driller.
5/32" drill.
screw terminals from old spark plugs.
and tap water from the bathroom to clean the leftovers.

i think chc-125 would be better if usign longer pci-e cards.
im usign hd4650.

Using the worm clamps to prevent the hose from bending is an interesting solution, however potentially damaging over time. With the close proximity it is a goo place to put a flow meter for the 90' bend.

Koolance 13mm tubing is good enough, maybe Tygon B-44- aab0003* is better, but...

the only problem with Koolance 13mm Tubing, is Heat
if the system overheats...becouse reservoir does not have enough H2O.
the Tubing around CPU-350ac goes something like this:
