Enzotech Sapphire Series SNBW-Rev.A Extreme Performance Northbridge Liquid Cooling Block is a native 1/2" SLI compatible Northbridge block. Using a high density stagger fin design, the SNBW-Rev.A provides maximum surface exposure area to the liquid running through it for superior cooling performance. With a mirror finish on the heatsink, surface contact with the chipset is optimized and thermal conductivity improved. Variable mounting systems allow the SNBW-Rev.A to be compatible with all of the most recent SLI motherboards - and since the factory leak tests every block, you don't need to worry about system leaks!

I needed a block to cool the southbridge on my ASUS KGOE-D16 board. The southbridge heatsink hooks with a clamp, and there are no holes to mount the block with screws. This severely limited my options from within the universal blocks. This waterblock is with nothing other than quality. It offers very little flow restriction. The inclusion of a foam spacer was very important in my case, as I needed something to prevent the block from pressing too hard and chipping the southbridge die. Opening the box, all accessories and the block are arranged as fir display in a foam insert. The mount packs are placed in individual labeled bags. A "spring mount pack", "clip mount pack", and a "hard mount pack" are provided, along with an well illustrated manual on how to use either of the mounting methods. If your board only accepts clip mounting, and the provided clips are the not the right size, no problem; just use the clip that''s already on the board. The included thermal paste is an Arctic Silver Ceramique. This is a top of the line non-conductive thermal compound, and I am impressed than Enzotech decided to include it instead of some no-name compound of questionable quality. This only shows that Enzotech has designed this block as a top product. The set also includes two Enzotech 1/2" high flow barbs. These are my barbs of choice, and by far the best barbs I have ever worked with. Since most blocks don''t even include fittings, these barbs are a great value-add. I didn''t plan to use the barbs on this block, but I did use them on a different part of my cooling loop. Going to the block itself, both the lower and upper piece are made of unplated copper. One complaint I have is that the block did not have a protective sticker on the bottom piece, however, the block is packed well enough that scratches during shipping are not a concern. There is also a plastic piece which covers the top copper part. Clip-mounting requires the removal of this plastic, and an allen wrench is provided to achieve this, as well as a set of shorter screws and washers if one wishes to also remove the metal S-piece used for hard and spring mounting. The only setback I have had with this block was that the G1/4 ports were too close together to fit two EK 16mm solid tube fittings. I had to use a spacer to lift one of the fittings. I believe the same issue would apply to Monsoon and Bitspower fittings. Overall, this block is phenomenal in both features and quality. For me, it was a lifesaver, as I needed to cool my southbridge, which was getting quite hot (77+ C) before I installed this block. The accessories which are included are also top-notch. Enzotech has thought of everything.

I had never really done anything with Enzotech''s liquid cooling products. As my introduction to the line, I must say I am not disappointed. This waterblock balances function/performance and asthetics. The box had everything you need for any type of mounting scenario. The solid copper block takes the heat right off the chipset. My NB went from frying eggs to being cool to the touch. If you are looking for a waterblock that fits, looks good, and does a great job, then this is the one. The price helps out too, very affordable.
