ASUS P5N-E SLI 650i Thread - Page 47

post #461 of 9621
for all canadians try this site...very fast and cheap prices.

www.ncix.com

Adhesive? I would advise against that in case you need to RMA your board since I heard that you cannot take off the adhesive if needed. Try to use AS5 instead. I read that it is better than Cerimic.

As for a good fan dpawl....I suggest a NOCTUA fan. Looks weird but VERY powerful and silent.

Does anybody know how hot the SB gets on overclocking? Let’s say a 400FSB
has anybody touched the SB to see if it was just warm are is it real hot?

As far as the adhesive- I hate the idea of it too. But that HS I showed him comes with it on it, but it's crap - so I suggested upgrading it. You can also use zip ties or try to mod some clips in or what not. I won't use thermal adhesive either, but to each his own.

As far as the Noctua... they are REAL quiet... they push slightly above average CFM, they are REAL ugly.

I can't justify a bit more CFM and a bit less noise, for a NASTY NASTY color fan! I can't put something like that in my 900. I just... can't... do... it!

Hmm, normally I would say don't worry too much about the SB.
But @ 400FSB... I'd worry. For safetys sake, just get a passive HS and some AS5. That's what I am doing.

I just was given this chipset cooler by a friend as a hand me down: (Vantec Iceberg)

http://www.svc.com/vanvgaandchi.html

Think its good enough cooling for the northbridge? Its so small, and still alum, do you thing the big stock heatsink would be better?

Do you have that whole kit? Or just the fan? Or just one of the heatsinks?

If you have just a heatsink... don't use it on the NB. Because it is smaller and has less overall surface area to disipate heat.
If you have the fan, which is a fan designed for a GPU... I doubt it will fit on the NB, but you can try.

If you have either of those heatsinks, stick one on your SB!

**EDIT**
If you have the big heatsink, it says one HS is alum and one is copper. If the big one is copper, it should outperform the stock NB HS.
