My System Specs

Default EVGA 780i watercooling

I want to watercool, but I don't want anything in the way of SLI....

Motherboard is: EVGA nForce 780i SLI 132-CK-NF78-A1

I was thinking this:

Bitspower Black Freezer N780NS 780i Reference Board North / Southbridge Combo Block (BP-WBN78NS-BK)


But I can't seem to find used/new stock anywhere.

I'm basically looking for something that will get both chips, instead of just the one. Also, I like how the bitspower doesn't have any hoses running down near where the video cards will be SLI'd.

Anyone know of anyone else who sells a block that covers both north and south bridge?

I don't know if you still have the question but I have searched the same for months and never found a clue.
I'm planning to adapt the stock heat dissipator to be water cooled.
The plan is to remove the vertical blades orinally cooled by a fan on the NB, to weld the superior surface of this part until have it well polished, apply thermic compound and mount a common copper waterblock on the top of it.
This way the stock cooler solution will be watercooled and cooling NB, SB and mosfets.
Does it make sense?

I got this board under water, I have two EK blocks. They don't get in the way of SLI if you have blocks on the video cards. If you're only air cooling the cards then the bitspower is your only choice.

NB/SB block
Bitspower BP-WBN78NS-BK BLACK FREEZER 780i NB/SB All-in-One Water Block Products Model: BP-WBN78NS-BK [BP-WBN78NS-BK] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come
Mosfet HS
Enzotech MST-780i Forged Copper Mosfet Heatsink fo 680i/780i Products Model: MST-780i [MST-780i] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

This is the way I would go TBH.
Also at sidewinder it's cheaper
Bitspower Black Freezer N780NS NB / SB 780i Chipset Block

Both are out of stock right now, I'd shoot a support message at both of them to see when stock will be in.

It is in stock at Frozen, but costs more.
Frozen - $120, no barbs
PPCS - $110, with barbs - No stock
SW - $100, no barbs - No stock
