When mine dies I'm just going to bin it and dump one of these on there using thermal epoxy:The chipset fan was totally pointless. The heatsinks that went with them wouldnt pass muster for an intel atom. Multiple users have succesfully put passsive heatsinks ont heir motherboards and lowered temperatures from the 60-70c range to the 40c range, with NO FAN.
The fan was a totally pointless feature, why it was pushed can only be chalked up to human stupidity.

They were super-expensive boards though. I wasn't paying an extra $/£/€500 just to get fanless chipset cooling.Isnt there is a couple that I know x570 which are passively cooled? The overpriced Giga x570 aorus xtreme and Asus dark hero. But very well
Oh yeah, you mentioned they were overpriced. I just didn't realise *how* overpriced they were until I just looked it up.
