Default northbridge cooler

title says it all...i wants one lol.
suggestions on a good one? i know zalman makes a little passive one, and i have also found one made by nexus , here:
Nexus NHP-2200 Northbridge Cooler
which is also passive. and it looks cool as ****.

any heatsink/fans anyone knows about? opinions on either of these?

I have two thermalright hr-05 ifx/sli. Xigmatek has one and noctua also. Those would be the three I would choose. I'll let you know temps this weekend when I fire it up

edit:
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK PTR-N881 HDT Northbridge Aluminum alloy Heatsinks only - Memory & Chipset Cooling
Noctua NC-U6 Dual-Heatpipe Chipset Cooler

These are the two I have on my board
Thermalright HR-05/IFX Chipset Cooler
Thermalright HR-05 SLI/IFX

edit:
I just got done installing the thermalrights this how it looks so you get an idea. Hopefully my card comes in tomorrow and I can tell you the temps I get

crap that looks like a japanese skyline thirdshift...frikkin awesome.
i just realized that my mosfet heatsink is attached to my northbridge heatsink so no aftermarket for me. unless you guys have a suggestion on how to overcome that?

i guess i could individual heatsinks on the mosfets?

I'm purchasing the thermalright mosfet heatsinks or you could get the enzotech ones that are individual $10 for 10. I would do either/or.
Enzotech MOS-C1 Forged Copper Mosfet Heatsinks
