i just got my zalman passive northbrigde cooler today (the blue one, im too lazy to get the model right now), and im kinda disappointed at its size. its not too much bigger than the stock gigabyte 8IK1100 active cooler. so i think im gonna get the d-tek chipset block. does anyone know if it'll fit on my mobo? the holes for the northbridge heatsink are 6.7-6.8cm apart. thanks for any help


also, on teh stock hs/f there is a pad around the edge of the heatsink. should i try to take it off and put it onto whatever replacement i get? i assume its so i don't crush the northbridge, is this a real problem? its the intel 875 chipset.

i am positive it will fit on AMD mobo but not P4

yeah, i don't really like the idea of using thermal epoxy. expecially since there may be added strain from the tubes pushing. oh well, i guess i'll just have to stick with the zalman for now.
