There are Mosfet water blocks for the GA-X58A-UD3R

  NOTE!  Moved this from general discussion as I thought it might reach the right people here better!

 Just thought some people might like to know there is a way to fit water-blocks on the Mosfets to the X58A-UD3R mainboard, ...I literally hunted for months via the web to no avail ... ended up with stacks of engineering drawing and found what I wanted.

  Enzotech WMST-73 and 78....One of them fits a treat and the other required a small mod to get it to fit, had to ease the holes out a bit bigger(1.2mm) and Dremel a small 8mm radius about 2mm deep to one point to clear a capacitor and that was it, ... if you need more info let me know what you need.

 This was the final piece to the puzzle as there are blocks for everything else for the ud3r.....640 raid card come today! see how we go over the weekend!!!

Hi Allan

Thanks for the tips although I thought that EK made ones to fit anyway (must be thinking of some other board I guess). EK do a whole board waterblock for the GA-X58A-UD7 boards, I am not sure if they would fit the UD3R as well.

Thanks for the tips although I thought that EK made ones toi fit anyway (must be thinking of some other board I guess). EK do a whole board waterblock for the GA-X58A-UD7 boards, I am not sure if they would fit the UD3R as well.

 Unfortunately I got caught with the same thinking...the ud5-7 and 9 are all covered but the 3 was left out in the cold ... something to do with the layout changes  between version 1 and 2, I was guttered when trying to generate a block list after buying the board but I got there in the end.

 If there is in fact a full set can anyone out there confirm...might have an axe to grind with several suppliers.
