Hi.

I was wondering if there is a possibility to mount a CPU block for water cooling instead of the included aluminum cooler. I was thinking of doing some custom modding and my own little case for this board. Iv'e seen people water cool raspberry pi 3 and they used Alphacools MCX one for the pi, Which seems to be a little to small for the Tinker board.

In short- What size is the CPU L x W for the CPU chip on the Asus thinker board. Buying a too small CPU water block is my concern.

Here is the video of a guy doing a cool little setup using the pi:

Looking forward to this.

I found out the dimension of the CPU block on page 55/78

If you search Google for "water cooling raspberry pi" there are a good dozen videos and the arrangement would be the same for the tinker board.

You going to attach a Tinker to something that huge?  No me.
I just use the tinker sink and a small fan 40x40x10.  Runs very cool and quiet.
I attach the fan to the 3.5v pins so the fan spins less which extends the life of the fan.
All is needed is to blow out the dust from time to time.  Very easy.

You not qoing to get anymore cooling than that.
