woa uhm, you want replace your heat pipe passive cooler with that .... little chipset fan? You might just need a little more air flowing into your case, what kind of case fans do you have? Have you cleaned the dust out recently?

you wanna stick that ontop of the other heatsink? i don't think you can do that.... i think you're gonna have to remove the original heatsink... not sure but you might be able to put just the fan on the heatsink.. since the fan has a heatsink w/ it.. like seperate them and put the fan on your heatsink that might work. just guessing tho.

i think just go with what Sui said.

did you overclock your comp?
