Hi I basically have an Asus P4C800 Deluxe currently running at 225FSB but im just waiting to get some PC4000 or even BH5s!. But anyway il basiaclly hopefully try to push 250+FSB maybe and am wandering if I should do anything to the the bridges, either add a fan onto the northbridge and then a heatsink on teh southbridge. Is this a good idea?.

I also heard of people replaing the original compound of the southebridge with arctic silver or something is this also a good idea?

All good ideas. Just make sure it looks nice. That's most important. JK..

This of course, could not hurt -- unless you did it incorrect and used toothpaste or something which impeded themal conductivity.

Kinda hard to mess up.. Arctic Silver Adhesive works well.
