My socket is broken, so I'm propably going to take some measurements of the block & mobo and have a suitable copperplate made. I was thinking of having a heatsink attached (Pep66t) to it, with a fan ofcourse. Has anyone done this? Effects? I know it works as a small backup system atleast.

Thanks in advance.

There's an article on in the watercooling section about this. It seemed to work good as a backup. The guy turned off the pump and his temps still stayed within spec.

Thanks for the fast replies! I'll go check it out now.

Edit: I had that same idea as that bacatá site, but for a blorb, using coiled copper tubing. Petar Lazarevskis article is what I meant, but it sadly doesn't tell what kind of difference in temperature there is when the water is running.

If someone has that waterblock from ochideout or the aqualstealth heatsink-clip, could you tell me the difference in temperatures with and without fans?

Thank you!

I did it that way, but mostly for a great look, and an easy attach of waterblock in combination with a modded clip. And the fan was needed due to mobo demand for this. But the thing works really nice, and give me a backup, if the pump should stop. Got a bigger picture of it all, if you want :)
