Need a spare chipset heatsink for EVGA x58 mobo

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, I was wondering if it was possible to buy a new chipset heatsink for this mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-065-_-Product

If not, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can replace a missing chipset heatsink on this mobo?

If you're trying to replace the original NB cooler, try contacting EVGA.

If not, then there's this one - HR-05.

Hey, thanks for the reply. As a computer noob, I was really unclear. I'm not sure what it's called, but I believe it's the mosfet (correct me if I'm wrong)? It's not the northbridge or southbridge. It's the heatsink right next to the cpu slot. Can the HR-05 be used as a heatsink there?

No, you need mosfet heatsink. I'll look something up, be right back.


update:

These will work, and if you can get some airflow over them even better.

If you are looking for direct replacement, try posting over at the EVGA forums.
