EK-FB ASUS C5F-Z is a complete water cooling solution for ASUS Crosshair V Formula(-Z) motherboard. This waterblock directly cools AMD 990FX northbridge chip and power regulation (VRM / MOSFETs) module. It is medium-high to high flow water block design that can be easily used with systems using weaker water pumps.
Base of the waterblock is made of nickel plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality POM Acetal material and covered with laser cut stainless steel plate. The sealing is performed by quality rubber gaskets.
Water block is mounted with enclosed M2.5x4 DIN7985 screws and PVC washers. Preinstalled 2.1mm nickel plated brass screw-in standoffs allow for easy installation.
Enclosed thermal pad is used on voltage regulator module to improve cooling performance of the waterblock. On the northbridge please use any electrically non-conductive thermal grease, e.g. Gelid GC-Extreme.
The southbridge chip SB950 remains cooled by factory (ASUS) provided heat-sink.
This product is intent to be run without the backplates. The stock backplates are made of steel anyway and don’t have practically any cooling surface. Their only job is to ensure even contact of the factory flimsy heat-pipe cooling system with the MOSFETs. Because the EK-FB ASUS C5F-Z waterblock is made out of hard electrolytic copper there is no need for such backplates.

This thing was fun and easy to install...just READ THE FREAKIN INSTRUCTIONS....don''t do like I did and glance over them and go okay got it and start slapping stuff together. This block cools my board sometime to 28c when idle and no more than 33 on load with prime 95. Running an FX-8350 OC''d to 4.4
A must have for any Crosshair formula V board02-02-2013

EZ install and this dropped my temps down to 30 degrees max running 2800 northbridge and a 4.3GHZ on a 1100T!
