Default Re: my motheboard is blazing hot!

thirdshiftdj's advice is a good idea. Here's another one:
Wherever PCI Rack [WPR] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

And the one thirdshiftdj mentioned, which is much cheaper:
Zalman Fan Bracket [BR123] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come
with fan:
Zalman Fan Bracket with 92mm Fan [FB123] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

If the NB fan is smaller than 80mm, it's most likely a 40mm.

You mount it in an empty PCI slot or the PCI braket. Just look at the pictures, or read the info on it. And I'm sure they come with instructions.

yes it mounts on three pci brackets. The fans can either mount on top or on the sides on those curvy looking slots and they are adjustable. I haven't had any mounting problems w/ it at all. 120mm fan keeps my ram and NB nice and cooling.

edit: I actually like the one B1G suggested. It'll look better in your case. I'm going to grab me one.

44c isnt that hot, you cant even burn yourself on that, the hottest water tanks are designed tou output is 70c and that wont even scold you. so i dont beleive it burnt your finger maye have been a litle hot, but thats about it, i would leave it, il post my northbridges temps in one second i just gotta download asus probe 2. my north bridge is ideling at 52c much higher then yours and it is still safe.

Indeed.

44C is fine...

If you really think it's that bad, just buy a cooler for it.

A pict showing the side view of your comp would help. Stock alum heatsinks are terrible when voltage is increased.
+1 for Thermalright, just make it fit.
