    Northbridge cooling for TH7-II

    Does it make sense to set a 40mm Globalwin cooler onto the passive heatsink of the i850 northbridge??

    My system temps went up to 39 today. Normal idle is 30-32 and load is 36-39 (depends on room temp).

    How many degrees could I gain with a little fan on it?

    And how do I attach the fan without damage the passive cooler??

    Thank you!!

    Yes, I know, but then I have to remove the Abit heatsink. And I don't think that the mounting system is compatible with the board. I could get a 40mm Globalwin for 5 bucks and I want to attach that to the heatsink.

    But how? And what do I gain??

    Hi Merkor,
    I did a DIY job with mine, Just got a 40mm fan and glued it to the Abit HS, The temp dropped by about 3 deg.

    but what good does it do? I mean, does it allow you to run at a higher FSB that's worth the effort?
