Im thinking about liquid cooling my AMD 780G northbridge due to the fact that it gets so hot that the slightest touch can lead to a burn. But i'm new to liquid cooling, and i'm unsure of which water block to use. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot, Frankie.

Nice system. What videocard?

Anyway, I have a 780G, I don't watercool it even though it gets hot. Although I'm not as OC'd as you are. You might put a better heatsink on there then use a fan on that heatsink, or sure, give watercooling a shot. Personally I wouldn't watercool anything less than a top-of-the-line chipset though.

Careful use of liquid cooling, the danger in the event of a leak because it can cause electrical short
