Product information: EK-FB GA G1.Sniper 5 - Acetal+NickelEK-FB GA G1.Sniper 5 water block is a complete liquid cooling solution for Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 motherboard. The water blocks directly cools Intel Z87 southbridge (PCH), PLX PEX 8474 PCIe lane splitter as well as power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module. It is a high flow water block that can be easily used with systems using weaker water pumps.
Base of the waterblock is made of nickel-plated copper while the top is made of quality Acrylic material. The sealing is performed by quality rubber gaskets.
Water block is mounted with enclosed M2.5x4 DIN7985 and PVC washers. The 2.1mm nickel plated brass screw-in standoffs are already preinstalled and allow for easy installation.
Enclosed thermal pad is used on voltage regulator modules and PCIe lane splitter to improve cooling performance of the waterblock. On the southbridge (PCH) chip please use any electrically non-conductive thermal grease, e.g. Gelid GC-Extreme.
