Re: Mr. ComputerForums
Nah. Going with a combo block for NB/SB. Bitspower's 790i MCP/SPP block. The problem is, that with the Evga 790i series boards, you have to remove the enture cooler set which is the NB cooler, SB cooler, and 3 MOSFET banks all surrounding the socket. I can't fetch any MOSFET blocks or I lose the ability to fit on my CPU-340 (which only makes contact with the CPU on the left side right now...)
I've heard the suggestion quite a few times to change CPU blocks and be done with the problem, but I really want to avoid that. I am VERY impressed with this block. Even only making half contact, at 4GHz, the temp remains at 29C and 30C idle. With rear case fan completely off, Fans at 60% on rad, and pump at 50%. That really makes a statement for how much potential this block has.
