LGA775 block for hydrocool 200

Recommended Posts

Nearly a year later still on the search for LGA775 waterblock adaptor for original Hydrocool 200. I now have a 2nd Hydrocool EX200 this time bought brand new at a disty clearance sale so have 2 of these awesome units. I found an AMD64 adaptor in Japan thanks to Clevor

 

installed on DFI NF4 SLI-D

But haven't found anything for LGA775 yet - the zalman WB3-Gold looks good but not sure it fits 1/4" tubing by default as it lists tubing is compatible but doesn't say if the required compression fittings are optional (needing separate purchase) http://www.zalmanusa.com/usa/product/view.asp?idx=157&code=021 ?

 

Any ideas ?

the zulmen are 3/8 id 1/2od fittings (Tubes that are not of 12 x 8mm should be used with spare fittings.) so that means you need to get some 1/4id 3/8od fitting to use on HCX - WB3.

if you want to keep 1/4 HCX tubing on old WB, cut tube just in front of quick connector end , leave a piecse of old 1/4 on covering the hose barb connector an slide new 3/8id tubing overtop the rear quick connectors an use a clamp to hold it.

I too want to use my HC200 for a 775 chip. I found a block that should work made by Koolance (koolance.com) :cool: I only recently ordered the parts to build this 775 rig so as of now I'm still in the research stage. :roll: I have though in the past used a koolance block for my video card and the 1/4 " ports worked well with the HC200 hoses. :laughing: I still need to figure out how to effectively attach a thermal couple to this CPU block. I may try a thermocouple that came with a fan buss I have. :confused: I was hoping Corsair would have a block with the TC attached but it's not looking good. :[pouts:

Eva, check Coolmaster. I think it's they who make an adapter kit where you can run a S478 heatsink on an LGA775 board. So you can go ahead and just use the P4 mounting kit with the dual clamps.

 

I think it may include a 1/16" copper spacer to make up the height diff. I bought one a while back here in Japan but never used it and I don't know where to find it under the pile of stuff I got.

 

BTW, I probably shouldn't post this here but can't find a concentrated source of users: anybody selling their HC200, preferably EX please contact me. I'm interested in buying it.

Eva2000,

 

Currently, I'm running one HC200EX on a LGA775 machine. Here's how ... :D:

 

http://www.frozencpu.com/bra-07.html

 

The Scythe Universal Retention Kit will convert the LGA775 hold-down hardware to a standard P4-478 hold-down. Then you just use the P4 HC extruded bracket, the two clips and four nylon spacers. That's it! Plus, this kit is only $10USD. CHEAP!

 

The square spacer for the setup isn't needed since the cold-block contacts the CPU. However, you may need to get (4) four nylon spacers/washers, from the local hardware store, to help offset the P4 bracket some. As to the thickness of those spacers, I can't remember what I used. :( Taking the system apart right now isn't an option.

 

This works easy and is very simple to do. :sunglasse

 

Peace!

Stev, that's one of two of those types of adapter kits I see in Japan. My concern is the use of two-piece brackets versus a square frame, upon which the S478 sink clips onto. Is it sturdy enough when screwed down? I change CPUs a lot.

 

Not sure if that's the kit that comes with a copper spacer, but it sure comes in handy when running a Mobile A64 (no spreader) on a S754 board! When I use the spacer the S478 spring clips on the HC200EX cooling block have just the right tension when secured (I am using the S478 to A64 adapter). I'm using the S478 adapter kit for all my S754 and S939 boards.
