has anybody been "stuck" by their northbridge cooling? does this really help, or is it just for bragging rights?

Northbridge fans only add noise to the system. Also, a watercooled computer doesnt have a CPU fan blowing air accross the NB, so the NB might get hotter than normal, especial if it is passivly cooled to begin with.
