ABIT KG7-RAID Chipset Cooling


Has anybody replaced the stock chipset heatsinkd and fan with something else? I was looking at crystal orb or something like it, but I don't know if I have enough clearance because of the misc. transistors and capcacitors that are so close to the chipset? Anyone had any luck with any fans and heatsink combos on the kg7-raid board? Any help is greatly apprecaited!

I have a plain KG-7, but I believe they're laid out the same. I haven't replaced the chipset cooler, but I did remove it, lap it, and add some thermal grease. I also replaced the plastic attachment nubs with nylon screws. It made a little difference, but not enough to give me any better an overclock.
