    Planing to buy this motherboard but read from some review the chip set get a bit hot. Care to recomand some solution here? Anyway can i replace the NB and SB heatsink? And so what should i use? There seems to plenty aftermarket heatsink for the NB but none or very few fir SB and the SB heatsink in most motheboard is very very small. Why is that so?

    Will i still be able to use cpu coolers like thermalright SI-128 while i use HR-05 SLI? And what do i use for SB? Since most of the chipset cooler is for NB.

    ati chipsets usually run cooler, and you probabily won't need a aftermarket cooler, especially for sb, for your board i would recommend getting the non sli version, since that is for the sb of the nforce boards, about using both at the same time (HR-05, SI-128) i would send a mail to thermalright, they helped me a lot n the past ;)
