They have VRMS off the north or south bridge? That seems like an... interesting design choice by MSI, especially considering they're supposed to be Military Grade hardware. rolleyes.gif

Mind throwing up some pics?

Anyways, I wouldn't worry about getting cooling on them unless you plan to massively overvolt your CPU. Motherboards don't generate that much heat.

If it won't harm anything and low not much but some C why not ? I saw it costs 10-15 $
