Can I ask why? I assume its because you wish to OC further?

If so a 80mm Fan or a 'Antec SpotCool' are a much better idea

The Antec SpotCool wil seriously help cooling a passive item, 99% of NB and SB heatsinks are passive. Any fan, even if it has extremely low CFM, will help lower temps. On a Nb it oftens comes close to halving your current temps, but that depends on other factors to

Chipsets and NB's will be Ok untill about 85*c, then they will start to throttle but they are good untill about 110*c.
Go for it and get a spotcool, they can be extremely usefull for VRMs NBs etc
