    Check out Thermalright's chipset coolers:

    Thermalright HR-05 SLI
    Thermalright HR-05

    I have the HR-05 SLI on my Maximus Formula Northbridge and one of THESE on my southbridge because at the time, i needed low profile.

    The HR-05 lowered my NB temps by almost 20 degrees

    Ahh my bad, I always forget to check system specs before offering advise ha ha

    Any chance of a picture of your rig I'll go looking for something suitable.

    I was looking for heat sinks last month so can find some pretty good ones.

    Wow, not much space for any of the decent after market coolers, looks like a thermal-right HR-09 would fit on your mosfets though, check the thermal-right site to confirm

    As for the NB, Enzotech sinks are probably going to be the only ones that will fit and perform better then stock.

    One of these should take temps down to 40-45 or so with good airflow.

    You could just buy little solid copper blocks and make your own.
    Cooper is a pretty easy material to shape and cut if you have a few tools around the house.
    Then you get bragging rights for having one-of-a-kind, custom heatsinks :toast:

    the HR-05 SLi might be able to squeeze in there for the NB but you won't be able to put any kind of fan on it...

    I'm thinking parts of it may make contact with the GPU, don't want a short circuitD:

    although I suppose that's easily fixed with electrical tape.


    POS, enztotech make mosfet coolers too, they're just individual for each mosfet if I remember correctly, they'll get the job done and match with the other coolers its just more fiddly.

    oh by the by, you have tried simply using better paste on the NB right?

    The stuff that comes with motherboards tends to be complete horse shite most of the time.
