NB size on A7N8X dlx
has anyone actually taken off the HS and looked @ the NB on the A7N8X dlx? I've got some "credit" at ThermalTake, and thought, why the hell not for a NB chipset cooler... but the only one they sell is a Intel chipset one, that look's nice...
only problem is, the only flat all copper base part of it is 15mm x 15mm... now I am wondering, is the A7N8X's nvidia NB bigger or smaller or about equal to that??? does anyone know for sure??
i think it would also maybe work like the SLK-800, where the air would blow through the fins onto the chip if it were bigger, but unfortunately its only a 5.1CFM 40mm fan, and that wouldn't do much...

The size of the whole NB is larger than that... About 40 mm...
BUT, the metal plate on the chip is smaller... A diam of about 20-25 mm. But the heatsink has to rest against the epoxi that contains the chip. You may crush the NB core if you have a heatsink that only rests on the metal plate... Not to common, but it's a hint for not getting the core crushed.
