I'm thinking about mounting a HS and fan on my the northbridge of my A7V. I was wondering if someone had a pic of what they did and what kind of performance increase they got from it. I wanna make sure that i get it in there right when i do it. Thanks.

Here's some articles by Joe you might find interesting - I don't have any personal experience of cooling the northbridge, but by all reports it helps stability to the tune of a few more MHz on the fsb. Can't hurt to cool it some more though, if only to extend the life of your mobo - go ahead, put a better heatsink on it :)
