    Hi guys,

    Just wanted your opinions on the following.

    I have a new system on order based on the GA-EX58-UD3R mobo.
    (i7 920 & 5850)

    I have a watercooling loop I plan to install, however before I go out and buy the new blocks I need answer to the following.

    How much air flow would be required in the case (over the mobo heatsinks) to keep the NB, SB etc from overheating? Would natural convection be enough to keep them cool? (large case, lots of room, RC-1000)


    NVM, just going to upgrade my order to an EXTREME with the built in waterblock
