i just wanted to let any prospective buyers know that you won't be able to put a larger chip cooler, e.g. blorb, on the northbridge without some major modification. there's this big ole capacitor in the way . . . just wanted to let you know. i don't think that's it's an issue for many people, i just like to throw a bigger one on the nb when i get a new board, is all . . . laters . . .
NB cooling on AK35GTR

yup... but you can add a piece of an old heatsink cut into a square, or at least pry the little bugger off and slap some AS3 goo on there. Its just like the AK31, and the fan probably has the same propensity of failing as the AK31's NB fan.
