Default Quiet Northbridge cooling

I am heading for a quiet PC, the noisiest thing in the case now is the Northbridge fan, I am looking at the Zalman ZM-NB47J Northbridge Cooler, (link below), and run the Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro 2 nForce2 Ultra Motherboard, (link below).

I would like to know if they are compatible, i.e. the mounting holes on the board will be ok and the chipset is the right size/shape/species. If anyone else has any ideas (that do not involve water) feel free to share them.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it should fit properly. I don't see it interfering with anything on that board.

According to Zalmans website;

Compatible Northbridge Chipsets
ZM-NB47J is compatible with all Northbridge chipsets that do not have a built-in graphics chipset.

Note
1) ZM-NB47J cannot be used on motherboards that lack mounting holes around the Northbridge chipset.
2) If the provided push pins don't match the holes on the motherboard, use the push pins supplied with motherboard.
3) Do not install ZM-NB47J if it interferes with components on the motherboard. How to Install
