gigabyte northbrige cooling

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i'm looking at getting the gigabyte gs-965-s3 mother board and was wondering if any of these cooler will fit on the northbridge because its got passive cooling and i want to be sure it stays cool enough? also i am using the thermaltake big typhoon cpu cooler just in case there would be any clearance problems.

Either one is cool if you don't plan to OC very far. If you want to hit some high FSB then get something a little better. For the price, you can't beat a TT Extreme Spirit II. I used that on my Gigabyte board and had no clearance problems. There's also a couple more bad boys on this page but they cost a little more.

That's a good one too. The good thing about the Spirit is that you can mount it any way you want. You can literally point the HS in any direction. So clearly you're gonna want to point it away from your graphics card & BT. Most people probably have more issues with the graphics card clearing the NB HSF.

I'll check when I get home, I have a BT sitting around.

I don't have a NB cooler and managed 458FSB... but it DOES get very hot. I've read some reviews and there is a passive Zalman cooler that is apparently exceptional.

For ultimate NB cooling, I'd suggest something from Thermalright. However, I'm not sure that their models will clear the CPU Cooler (though I think it probably could.)

I think it's this one that you're talking about. I read it was awesome too but I can't find the review.

Let the review do the talking... Dont be fooled by bling and copper heatpipes. Zalman wins all, and thats what i have, and i love the little thing!

I usually get yelled at for these simple answers, but my board temp sensor was at 48c with the passive cooler on the NB. So I aimed an 80mm fan at it and the temps dropped to 38c.

I think that heatsink is very good. It certainly gets hot which means it is pulling the heat off the chip. So why not just blow a fan on it to take the heat away? IMO of course
