Well have to say your kinda fracked. Not enough space and if you have that many fans working your system why add more. or ghetto mod it?

NP see if you can make stand offs to mount the fan to. Locate the motherboard screws that are close to the spots to cool and carefully cut some plastic stand offs (Legs) you can screw to. Old case front panels are strong enough to hold small or big fans, just cutting them can be the fun part.

well you can use a duct tape and fill your side panel with 120mm fans. lol.

i think its going to be effective though.

because while all of them are doing their job, nothing is actually pushing air in the motherboards nb or chipset region, which is getting a lot hotter then when I used to have the intel stock air cooler.

Not a bad idea, but I had something else in mind, like a a metal arm of some kind attached(bolted) to the case somewhere. I got a few 1 inch x 1 inch aluminium angels that I salvaged from some old kitchen ventilation blocks. What do you think?

or is it possible to mod a old cpu cooler such as the Gigabyte G Power 2 and fit it on the nb itself to act as both a nb cooler and push air into the cpu chipset area? or is that going to be a too hard of a job to do or put too muych strain on my mb or hit my GPU's or other stuff?

Here's a quick and dirty idea....or two. One, you could use a ram cooler over your ram. They usually have 2 small 40mm fans in them and they're also usually adjustable for airflow. They can kick out a surprising amount of air and it will help to cool your northbridge. Two, you could do what I did, add a fan to the side panel of your case. You can see from my avatar on my 800D that I have 2 fans in the side blowing on my GPU and chipset. I also have the ram cooler and together they keep things nice and cool. Good Luck!

oh..he said he doesn't want it to look "ghetto" I have a small bolt/nut/lockwasher run through one of those little tabs in my case holding a 110mm
fan blowing directly on the vrms..it may look "ghetto" but it works! :

Really was trying to avoid having to cut another hole on my side panel. You got some MOAR pics? So maybe I can get the gist of it

I like the looks of the cooler. If you have the cooler..remove the shroud and fan to see what you have to work with. Dont be scared to try and work with tin/ metal to make your brackets with (paint for detail) just make sure you check your clerances. Also about the 40mm fans...they do work fine you just have to work out a shroud or bracket to hold it. I dont like to use a metal stand or bracket to bolt to the motherboard due to possible shortage or power flow(shocking) through.

On one of my systems i took some double sided heat resistant tape i bought at radio shack, and put 1 60mm fan on n/b and 1 on vrms, on my board i could have went 70mm. -only put tape on the center hub so u couldnt see it pressed them on my heat sinks and they worked great!! They just looked like a bouble fan set up on a video card.

Bottom drive bays and the pci back slots you can wire a
Few zip ties together and suspend a fan over the south bridge, your sol for the top one. Doesn't look like you have a Gpu in there, but from the looks of it some cable management would help the temps as well. Next best option, get a new case
