Default Hydro X XC7 CPU block and Asus x570-I mini-ITX

Will the Hydro X XC7 CPU block fit on the Asus x570-I mini-ITX motherboard?

No, it wont. The reason the included universal 1151/AM4 backplate is not compatible due to the board having lots of components on the backside of the PCBA. See encircled in red:

...Unless you're willing to modify it by cutting away parts of backplate. Dremmel recommended :)

Thanks for the response. Looks like I'll have to go with another company's cpu block. :(

There's a quick D.I.Y. solution for you. You can technically use UNC 6/32 screws and use existing backplate on the motherboard. Use the spring + spring washer from the XC7 water block. Like so, see below:



Four UNC 6/32 screw in appropriate length (let's say around 20mm) should be less than one $ USD.

The only thing you need to know is that this kind of kludged mounting system is now old-school approach, where you need to make sure to equally tighten down all four screws, preferably in the cross pattern.

Again, this is D.I.Y. solution

Looks like I'll be going the EK route, since they actually support my motherboard with their blocks.
