Cool Northbridge

My mobo temp hit 50 C at a Lan and I'm slightly OC'ed (3400+ 2.2 at 2.53 at 60 C) and i got a little curious...

1. Do northbridge coolers make big differences in overall temp?

2. Are these any good?

3. Any other coolers I should consider?

there is a thermalright one and a vantec one. im looking to get one myseltf. they do help when ur overclocking but not by a massive amount.

i would go with that 1st one u posted but make sure u have a fan on the side of ur case blowing onto it.

put some extra arctic silver 5 on with that zalman heatsink and it will keep it nice and cool, not sure about overall temps but your northbridge will probably be nice and cool

It won't effect overall temps at all. Keeping it cool allows you to pump in more voltage to the chipset for higher FSB's which requires an aftermarket NB heatsink really.

That's the one I have. Works great. Has it's own shroud, solid copper nice thick and heavy base, 8500RPM fan. Works like a champ

Nope not at all. It's a good quality fan, not some whiney piece of crap. When I was volt modding my board, had 1 regular 80mm on there, and that NB fan you can't even hear it. No way he's gonna here it in his case over the CPU fan and whatever other case fans in there



8600RPM right there
