Glad I could be of Service? So when do the parts arrive? I want to be there to drink Guinness and watch the setup!

Oh, and dont worry about the chipset heat issues. Although X58's do get warm, Ive never heard of a board on the market that was limited by northbridge heat issues. Sure, BCLK holes and other issues, but not Northbridge issues.

Yeah, I remember Kruzn and Chris and I talking about this issue. I believe it was resolved well before ordering the blocks.

Yup. I did wonder about this, and Kruzn mentioned this as well. I had some difficulty finding the info, so I submitted an Evga help ticket. Here was my question and the reply I got:

Question
Quote:
I have "01G-P3-1281-AR", and a "01G-P3-1285-AR" model GTX 285s (both registered under my profile). I was interested in watercooling them, and was wondering what revision PCB these were (as I understand nVidia changed the PCB revisions). Thanks!

Answered By Ryan M (11/26/2009 12:18:09 AM): there are EVGA HydroCopper blocks available for those cards. You could find more information available here: EVGA | Products As for the Board revision number, based on those part numbers they should be the first revision. Please let us know if you have further questions. Thanks EVGA Support
So I think I have the right blocks. Your info helps confirm this (the best way would have been the method kruzn preferred, which would have been visual confirmation of the actual PCBs...hopefully I don't regret my decision to be lazy and rely on the Evga support ticket).

You're good, your PCB's are version 1. They switched over in May. You can check it from the back of the card too, look for the placement of the screws per this picture: EK-FC285 GTX SLI Water Block for Nvidia 285GTX Products Model: EK-FC280 GTX SLI [EK-FC285 GTX SLI] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Woah there buddy I'm engaged! You should not sell yourself short though

I will be OCing this baby in a few weeks. I might even have another i7 rig to OC if I sell my folding rig (Q6600 @3.0/4GB/9800GTX+/550VX/500GB for $500...not parting out so no BST thread yet but soon perhaps). We can have an OC and beer night!
