Just a warning for anyone else who intnds to cool the IWill KK266 northbridge with a Blue Orb. It does not fit, the holes do not line up, the blue-orb is a little too narrow (1/8").

Yo

P.s.: will probably slap the ob on a graphics card

did you try cutting a notch out on the holes and use washers to hold it down with? since the holes don't line up, that's why you need the washers to hold it down with.

that's what i read on some review...

Yup...thats exactly right. You cut the 'ears' or wings out but keep the cut width as narrow as possible, just enough for the plastic deal to fit in, and use the washers to hold it in place...works like a champ...

Blue Orb will literally not fit ANY motherboard without modification...not worth the time or money, IMO. The GlobalWin FA420 works well and is easily attached using thermal tape.

I prefer using my old pentium 120 heatsink (probably since I had 1 collecting dust). at 50 mm its just the right side and u cant mount with thermal tape or thermal epoxy or drill 2 holes in the bottom of the heatsink and mount with screws or bolts :) now if i can only find a use for the pentium 120 cpu :) hehehe

Well I could attach that blorb with thermal tape too, but that stuff does not conduct heat as well as heatsink compound
