I was wanting to know if I should water cool my Asus P5N32-SLI Deluxe Northbridge chipset? Here's a picture of the actual motherboard. You be the judge! (mikec)
Note: This board uses pipe cooling as you can see in the picture.

i dont thing you will need it... the stock cooling should be more than enough.

Okay, thank you for replying back to me. (xmasmile)
But, I might still elect to use a Koolance CHC-A05 for my Asus P5N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard. Checkout this Koolance Waterblock for the NorthBridge Chipset link below.

Also, look at the way my chipset's cooling pipe design is layed out on the motherboard. I don't know if pipe is connected to the small Northbridge heatsink or not???

I guess it's ok. I've been considering this Dangerden Maze 4 chipset cooler: http://www.dangerdenstore.com/product.php?productid=157&cat=46&page=1 I've used the Intel 875 version before, and it performs very well. I just don't know if it will fit. That cap just below the NB chip might easily get in the way....

The Dangerden Maze 4 looks really nice and simple. I might just buy that instead. I will for sure buy Koolance for my video cards and CPU and hard drive setup. Thanks for the information mate! (xmasgrin)
