    A7V, should i continue to cool the Green Menie? Green Menie raised my system n CPU temp by over 3-5C

    i got an A7V.i installed a 486 fan over the green meanie. my theory is the fan causes the air to cool the green meanie but the bad side is that even more hot air gets circulated around the system n my CPU n system temp all got a +3 to +5 C.

    Do i really need to cool or continue to cool the green meanie?

    If you're not overclocking your FSB, don't bother.

    You should seriously consider increasing your case ventillation, cooling the North Bridge chip should NOT raise your temps by that much. Maybe 1-2 F, 3-5 C is totally ridiculous. Are you sure that you haven't just been having warmer days lately?

    Whether or not you cool the northbridge, there is going to be heat coming off of it. Cooling it down a little can't hurt. Anything you do to cool down any part of your system is to your advantage.

    Asus MA379-T Deluxe bios 602
    AMD Phenom II 940 Black Edition@ 3.35Ghz

    4gig (2x2gig) Kingston Hyper X 1066
    Asus Radeon X4870 Black Knight 1gig
    Lg DVD Burner
    PC Power & Cooling 750 watt Silencer

    Alot of those A7V's(like mine) really have trouble getting to a higher FSB.... the best I've done is 106, but it wasn't 100% stable. One thing I did, not really related to FSB, is take a Greenie off my first A7V(the one I killed), trimmed it a bit, and stuck it on my clock generator.... thats the little chip right below the DIP's... careful when you touch it, it can get REALLY hot...
