Hi,

I have an old MCW5002-64T waterblock that has served me well, and recently the TEC element died and I have procured a couple of identical spare TEC elements. I am looking to fit it to my new setup which is an ASUS P8Z77-v Prelium Motherboard with a i5-3570K (LGA1155 socket) CPU. Can anyone give me any tips or pointers or even if there is an adaptor plate for the MCW5002-64T TEC waterblock to fit the new mobo and CPU?? :)

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated .. :D

Hey there
we never made any LGA1155 bracket for this waterblock.
you would need to make a hold down plate out of aluminum to replace the AMD one. LGA1155 has a square hole pattern of 75x75 mm. Holes should be about 3.5 mm to clear M3 screws. You could get our back plate so that the block directly screws into the back plate (M3 thread).

That's cool .. I have a Storm and an Apogee water block, I may be able to modify the storm bracket for the 5002 or possibly graft the new pelts onto the storm. Worst case I will just run straight water with the Apogee while figuring out a solution .. :D

Hi,

As I mentioned previously I have an Apogee GT already, so I believe I would need the following to make it LGA1155 compatible.

  • S1156-BP - Socket 1155/1156 Motherboard back-plate
  • GTZ-SCREW-KIT - Set of Thumb screws, clips and springs for Apogee GTX & XT

I have tried to order these from the website but it will not let me checkout as apparently it cannot ship to me in Thailand (where I am working and living at the moment). Is there ANY way we could sort this out so I can upgrade my desktop sooner rather than later?? It would only need to be shipped via USPS registered mail or a similar inexpensive postal service, the size is rather small and would fit in a standard envelope size.

If you could please let me know as soon as you can that would be great as I would like to start the work on my PC in the next couple of weeks and this would make the install so much neater and also compatible for when I replace the waterblock with an Apogee HD in a month or so when I do my big order for video cards etc.. :)

cheers!! :)

Actually I think it is just an Apogee (not a GT) as the original packaging and documentation only has Apogee on it and no GT.

Also wouldn't the 775 bracket for the MCW5002 work for a LGA1155 if I used the above back plate as well??

the hole pattern for 1155 and 775 are different (75mm sq. for 1155 and 72mm sq. for 775)
