    I'm gonna get one of those as well. I would like the DFI, but they might not be in the US for another couple of months apparently.

    If I get the Biostar, I'm gonna put some heatsinks on the FETs where the power subsystem is. Other than that, not sure if anything will really make that much difference.

    I have used a Thermaltake Blue Orb on those 780G boards, cuz they blow lots of air down at the entire mobo and make it cooler.

    Thermaltake's Extreme Spirit II units are pretty good.

    They have 100% copper construction, have heatpipes, and a pretty silent fan. Also, they are not too big, so you shouldn't have too many clearance issues with any large CPU coolers (NB-wise), or GPU/Video card clearance issues (SB-wise).

    That said, I'm selling two retail boxed units as listed in my FS/FT/WTB thread. (my sig link) :D

    I recently sold my old primary motherboard where I was using both (one on NB, other on SB) and I've got a new motherboard now that has a fancy heatpipe/heatsink system of its own, so I have no use for em
