    Welcome to PUREOC Jim!

    Is this your first time with water cooling?

    I'm assuming you are using 1/4" Larkooler system, right?

    So, first thing you need to purchase 1/4" fittings to go with the blocks. And you need 3 individual blocks for your board; NB, SB and MOSFET. Each block cost from $25-$30 each and $10 for each pair of bards, your total cost for this upgrade would be around $120 given or take.

    The next question is.
    Are you really overclocking the board and what are the temps for the NB/SB/MOSFET now?

    my point was; some time you don't really need to water cooled the board chipsets unless you really push the overclocking. But if you are really want to water cool them then here are the blocks.

    All Koolance blocks, they will match with your Larkooler look.
    Northbridge
    CHC-122

    Southbridge
    CHC=125

    MOSFET
    MVR-40

    Fittings
    since Larkooler uses compression fittings so might use the matching one
    1/4"ID - 3/8"OD compression

    each link included pricing, they cost a little more than I estimated.

    you need programs such
    Everest or HWMonitor as long the motherboard has thermal sensors build in for those chipset.

    are you going to change the whole system or just to add on new chipset block?

    if you change the pump then you do need a reservoir because of Larkooler's pump/res combo.

    the next question I'm going to ask is; do you have a budget because you just opened a can of worms

    Because a decent pump cost around $80-$100 and a reservoir from $30-$60.

    you might don't need MOSFET block, I just looked at a pic of your board and it dosen't have heatsink for these chipset. It's mean they don't run that hot like you think.

    the tiny chips beside the CAPs on the left side of the CPU socket.

    if that the case you need a new pump MCP350 it is a good pump and only cost $55 bucks, the only problem is it has 3/8" fixed bards but your CPU block have 1/4" fixed bards.

    Do you see why I said you just opened a can of worms here?

    yep but thats ok i have some money to spend and wouldent the chip block hit the video card and right now i have a fan blowing cool air on the chip that is right under the cpu chip becouse i touched the fins that are on it right now and it was hot so i have to find a block doe that i think it is the north bridge im not shure can you check for me and if i have to pay more to get a better pump just for the chip block thats fine

    it's not you have to spend money on the pump, the problemm is now the fixed bards of your current CPU block, and the pump I suggested have 3/8"ID bards. You can replace the pump top but this replacement cost another $50 thought.

    So the best solution for this is you should go with pump/res combo and just buy a new pair of 1/4" fitting for the pump/res. So you can still use your current Larkooler CPU block.

    Here XSPC X20 750 Pump/Res combo it's a good decent unit and only cost $60.

    The little middle heatsink close to the CPU is Northbridge.

    BTW, where are you located?
