Exclamation Anyone have an MSI K8N Neo4 Ultra?

If you do, have you replaced the northbridge fan? It's pretty loud . . . if you have replaced it, what are you using in it's place?

how can a tiny northbridge fan make so much noise?? If ur really worried about it then just buy some copper hsinks and replace it or something(ive got em on my southbridge) but i wouldnt advise it, as if its a lil beast of a fan, the mobo prolly needs it..

well, its not the fan making the noise (i.e. high pitch, etc)

its more because of the vibrations its making

its a low hum
