Hi guys,

Does better northbridge cooling help overclocking or gain stability? If so, which fan/heatink would you recommend? Right now I am thinking of getting a Zalman heatsink plus a 6000 rpm sunon fan on top, or the Zalman by itself will do just fine?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated :)
yes, with better northbridge cooling you will gain better stability and a better FSB OC.
I have been running with a COrb on my northbridge, and it works great! :)
