if you can give me watercooling parts for free I'd gladly take them but let's be reasonable here. if I had money to spend for watercooling I would've just bought a new motherboard or go sandybridge. thanks for the inputs tho

You don't need many parts. 2 feet of tubing, a liter of distilled water, a drop of biocide, and the MCW. I dunno if shipping is problematic in the Manila, but I can walk across the street from my office and buy all of that for under 40.00 USD.

When I had this problem I wasted more than that on cheap crap copper heat sinks and Antec Spotcools to get the IOH to operate under 90C.

I get that you don't seem to want to go down this road, but with the H100 you are 3/4's of the way there and it is very effective.

The blue plate with the gigabyte logo is glued to the fins of the heatsink, it can be popped off (just be careful prying it) so a fan can be directed over it easier. If the temps are really out of hand an active chipset cooler isn't a bad idea, you would also need a sink for the mosfets by the rear connectors if you go that way.

temps are a problem. now that it's still morning. my NB is idling at 48 degrees. when it gets hot is when I start getting instability. having two gtx 480's isn't helping neither. yesterday all my component were so hot even the gtx 480 was idling at 70 degrees compared to now which is idling at 46 degrees so I really need to do something about it.later I plan on getting a NB heatsink and maybe slap in a 40mm fan or something

.my motherbaord doesn't have any warranties anymore (we only have 2 years warranty here) can I just saw off the metal bar thingy and just slap in back the "Ultra Durable" heatsink on the vrm's? not only do I want to do this to save up money a bit but tbh I like the look and other heatsinks I feel would ruin the overall look of the board
