i got my new asrock 939 mobo yesterday and having looked at the reviews it mentioned that the n/bridge gets abit hot during heavy use. would it be worth removing the standard h/s and fitting a h/s and fan combo? if so, can anyone recommened a good one

thanks

In my oppinion it isnt worth it to give extra cooling to your chipset. There is no gained performance. Possibly if the sound is annoying you, you can alternativley replace with a fanless Zalman heatsink.

Is yours hot? If not there's no reason do to so. And remember, Abits always report temps higher than they actually are.
