    When I was still running the rampage VI extreme, I had the same CPU block and a VRM block from watercool.

    Here is what the rig looked like back then:
    https://i.imgur.com/uA5xIQ3.jpg

    The coolant doesn't warm up or barely does. Running the Vardars at 1000 RPM, after 6 hours of prime at 5GHz the Delta between ambient and coolant was of 2°C placing the coolant at around 26°C.

    I believe there is a way to dissipate more heat from the CPU. The thing is the motherboard gets absolutely SOAKED in heat. It's crazy. Without active cooling the dimms reach a whopping 60°C under prime or HCI because the CPU warms everything up whereas it's significantly cooler under RamTest. What I am going to try is replacing the direct die frame backplate by a waterblock that will cover a large portion of the back of the motherboard. I found a post of some guy who dropped 6°C on a 3930K just by adding cheap heatsinks and a crappy fan at the back of the socket. Considering that was achieved on a CPU that didn't generate anywhere near as much heat, imo this is very promising and something I can't wait to try with the aforementioned custom waterblock.

    This is for after computex, the wait is going to be long but I should receive 2 matrix next week which should keep me busy :3
    Yeah think I'm going to wait to see what comes out in Q3 when the next refresh for x299 happens, If asus releases a new board ill most likely upgrade to that and keep my 7980XE and move to a CPU block as this monoblock doesn't seem to be great in terms of thermals.

    I've decided to switch from the Monoblock to individual VRM & CPU Blocks. I ordered the Watercool VRM Block. No instructions were included. Their customer service is non-existent to say the least. Anyone have a copy of the instructions for the MB-X Block for the R6E?

    The only downloadable instructions apply to an EVGA board.

    What kind of instructions do you need?

    It is a simple block that you screw in (2 screws) and then connect the ports (anyway you like). That is all there is to it..If you need to clean it just unscrew the screws holding the acrylic, clean it and then assemble it back...

    The mounting is straightforward. My box came with multiple thermal pads of varying thicknesses so I'd like to get an idea of which one to use. Looks like someone just tossed a bunch in there and shipped it out. It's not rocket science but it would be nice to know which one to use instead of trial and error.

    strange mine came with only 2 thermal pads 1mm thick that i replaced with fujipoly because why not. If you have 1mm thick pads, I suggest you use that.

    I'm thinking of just getting an omega and forgetting about water cooling the VRMs.

    I believe watercooling VRM on X299 is more important than on any previous chipset last few years.
    For Z390 really don't need VRM Block.

    This is why the VRMs are spread out on the omega to reduce heat also you don't need to watercool VRMs if there cooled correctly to start with.

    Pretty simple, remove stock and install VRM block. Use same back plate. Yes only two strips. One for mosfets and other for chokes.
