Product Description & Info


Finally, Watercool E.K. (made in Germany) has produced an exclusive P67 and Z68 liquid cooling chipset block set for EVGA's P67 and Z68 FTW (For The Win) series motherboards!

This block is a must-have for users utilizing multiple graphics cards, or overclocking heavily, as the NF200 and mosfets can generate the most heat on these boards. The chipset block kit features two separate blocks; one to cool the chipset and NF200, and a second L-chipset for the mosfets/VRM. For maximum performance, both blocks feature a copper baseplate, while the block top is made of Black Delrin / Acetal. A set of three polished, stainless steel plates cover the blocks for a shiny, finished look. On the business side of the block, integrated black standoffs are preinstalled for painless installation of your blocks.

Step by Step Installation Guide (Click-To-Enlarge, Mouse over for more Text)
Tools Needed: Anti-static strap, Philips screwdriver

Step 1. Verify all parts shown below are included accounted for.

Step 2. Anytime you work with sensitive electronic components, it is still a good idea to use an anti-static strap to keep yourself grounded at all times. As shown below, remove the three stock heatsinks from your P67/Z68 FTW motherboard using a Philips screwdriver: Two spring loaded screws for the P67/Z68 Chip, Six for the NF200, and eight for the Mosfet / VRM. (circled)

This picture shows the three heatsinks to remove from your P67/Z68 motherboard. Circled are the screws that need to be removed.
Three factory heatsinks as shown. When the heatsinks are removed, you should see this.

Step 3. Clean the two chips carefully of their factory thermal interface material. Methods of cleaning can vary, i.e. Arcticlean, Akasa TIM Clean, or Isopropyl Alcohol. Carb cleaner also works in a pinch though this is not an official recommendation. Two 1mm thermal pads are included, one big, and one small. The larger pad could use some trimming to fit properly on the P67/Z68 chip though if you choose not to trim them, there is no adverse affect. Be sure to remove both the white and clear plastic from the pad. The clear plastic side is the tacky side, and it helps if this is placed down, on the chip. Place the two mosfet pads on the mosfets, making certain that all the chips are covered by thermal pad.

Two 1mm pads go on these two chips after they are cleaned off. The 0.5 mm thermal pads go on the two rows of mosfet chips.

Step 4. Carefully place the main chipset block on the board, the mounting holes will line up once the block clears the first PCIe slot. While holding the block in place, flip the board up and install six M2.5 x 10mm Socket cap screws, each with an M2.5 flat plastic washer, in the six holes over the Z68 chipset. Just get the screws "snug" but not completely tight. For the other two holes above the P67/Z68 chip, the install here is top-down. There are two M2.5 x 12mm bevel-head screws to use for this, and the smaller Allen wrench is used to tighten these. On the backside of the board, again use a flat plastic washer and one nut for each beveled screw. The Heatkiller installation manual says to only tighten the screws "a few turns". While the standoffs should protect the board, heed their advice and do not over-tighten, especially the P67/Z68 chip. We recommend tightening up the other screws now, in a cross pattern, until they are taught and snug. Install the L Mosfet block next, using the same method, with seven M2.5 x 10mm screws, with a washer on each screw.

Carefully place the main chipset block on the board. While holding the block in place, flip the board up and install six M2.5 x 10mm Socket cap screws, each with an M2.5 flat plastic washer, in the four holes over the Z68 chipset. Just get the screws "snug" but not tight. For the other two holes above the NF200 chip, the install here is top-down. There are two M2.5 x 12mm bevel-head screws to use for this, and the smaller Allen wrench is used to tighten these.

Step 5. The finished product awaits a leak-test, which you should do before powering up the motherboard. If you are not sure how to do this, ask us.
