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?
