Default Temp Concerns, Fan Dilemnas

Ok, so my northbridge fan and I am making use of a temp fan situation in which I have a new fan/heatsink stuck to my stock heatsink (minus the fan of course) because I didnt want to take out my mobo to put a new fan on (yea, yea I know!). But Tigerdirect doesnt seem to carry many chipset fans...and most of the chipset fans listed seem to be for your video card. But I really need to get on top of this soon. And I figured that I might as well throw a more powerful fan on my CPU while Im at it. My question(s) are three fold:
1)is this a good CPU fan for my ASUS A8N Deluxe MOBO, AMD processor? http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...2339&CatId=493
2)is this a northbridge fan or cpu fan? cuz it kind of looks like a northbridge fan even though it says VGA, are some interchangeable?
3)can anyone give me a link to a nice "how to" site or something so that I dont mess this up?
As always, Im humbled by your guyses wisdom and most appreciative of it.

how do I know if my Northbridge chipset has a built-in graphics core, cuz I was thinking about getting a zalman passive heatsink but its says that it is not compatible with northbridges with built-in graphics cores...

Hmm.. I'll answer you'r first two questions first:

A. I dunno, it looks OK and its not too costy, but for almost same price you could get a nice thermaltake big typhoon or a zalman CNPS 7700-Cu or the CNPS9500 if you got enough cash [and room in you'r case, lol]

B. Dunno if its gonna fit a northbridge, but in that site of yours theres another one that says flat out that this will:

About the built in graphic core.... i'm not sure what you mean, like.. an on-board Video card? If thats what you mean just look @ you'r computer rear side [the back side.. where you connect thing] if you have a VGA connection on you'r mobo than the answer is yes... if you ment something else then i'm not sure, sorry.

Hope this helps somewhat....good luck.

what they mean is that the ramsinks could be used for the IC's on the motherboard. also some chipset coolers attach the same way as gpu coolers.
