ASUS P5N-D Motherboard Northbridge Waterblock (liquid cooling)

In this case, finding a waterblock for P5N-D northbridge is not hard, it's IMPOSSIBLE.

I don't know why NOONE has a waterblock, but it might have something to do with the fact that there are two chips there under the heatsink:

So make sure you know that before you decide to take that heatsink off. Which, in case you did not know, is VERY HARD TO DO. It is glued to the chips.

You have probably burned your finger on the heatsink, or even had instabilities at summer temperatures. My computer is liquid cooled everywhere else except the NB.

While the size of that NB heatsink is huge:

It isn't nearly good enough.

The only solution that you have is to use that included small clip-on fan. If it is too loud (especially in a liquid cooled system) (and it is loud), don't waste your money trying to buy a silent fan. Instead, get a PCI slot fan controller (very cheap ones are available), and have it running slower. Not much airflow is needed to keep that heatsink below red-hot.

 

And no, you won't find the solution to this problem elsewhere on the Internet. I have looked. Many times.
