ASUS P7H57D First Look
ASUS have provided us with some photographs of the forthcoming P7H57D Evo motherboard, that is based upon Intel's P57 Chipset. Details surrounding this are scarce, but we know that it supports all current LGA1156 processors, and will be ready for Intel's forthcoming 32nm i3 processors.

As you can see it follows the ASUS hallmark of a very well balanced colour scheme, which makes a lovely change from some of the Crayola type boards that pass through the OC3D labs. Side-mounted SATA ports are always a welcome addition and generally the board appears well laid out with everything in a sensible position.
The photograph on the left shows two outputs for the P57s integrated graphics chip, both VGA and DVI, plus the usual swathe of connectivity available to the modern user. On the right however is one of the biggest changes to PC hardware in recent times, an NEC USB3 chip. If you've missed the details surrounding USB3 then it's a quantum leap forward in speed and bandwidth, capable of providing transfer rates close to 3GBps SATA. It will probably render Firewire and E-SATA obsolete as soon as the hardware manufacturers upgrade their products to support it.
Finally both the heatsinks are quite unusual in their design. They will probably be one of those designs that everyone either loves or hates, but you can't deny they are eye-catching.
The ASUS P7H57D Evo is expected to be released in the early part of 2010.

You need an anti corrosion agent and an anti algae tbh, most shops sell one brand or another.

I forgot to say before, the only time it gets complicated is when a block is anodised like the zalmans, but its best to play safe as if it does corrode the results are not nice.

Ye, it says that it's pure anodized aluminum, so then it will react in my loop right..?

14-11-2009, 06:25:06

If its anodised it is meant to be protected. But tbh dude I wouldnt risk it for the sake of buying some additives. A protected loop would be fine. Unprotected in a few months would write off the whole loop if it did corrode.

Thanx for all the help mate, could you tell me if this stuff would be enough..?

14-11-2009, 06:34:19

buy some feser keenan its anti-corrosive :)

what gpu do you need the block for? why not buy a xspc one?

14-11-2009, 08:02:51

The xspc blocks only have a 2 hole mounting block which is really bad, I am currently cooling the card (HD5770) with one of them and I have to say, I will never recommend either their GPU or Chipset blocks.

Tbh dude if you have a 5770 then Id be buying a better block than the shoddy zalman. Take a look at the ek supreme core on gpu or maybe even the newer dtek fuzion core only gpu.

Also dont forget the ram & fets still need heatsinks & airflow still.....

what you linked was biocide btw not anti corrosion

not being rude but id never put a zalman cooler on an expensive card.

Thanks for all the advise, just found a D-Tek Fusion GFX 2 for as good price, I would imagine that it should eliminate all problems that the mentioned Zalman block might've had
