I was reading online that the best way is to blow air towards the heatsink and not away from it. Is this correct?
I would do as you describe blow air towards/over the cooler. either top down or across from the side. Whichecer you can pre-fab a way to hold the fan in place.
Check out the other forums and someone may have a piccy for some ideas.

To Zippit,

I think, I have the same video card as yours but your video bios seems to have a updated bios, I think again LoL

Take a LQQK:



---> Is there a way to flash the bios?

Does anybody else use this ASUS P5N-E SLI 650i board with the stock passive northbridge heat sink from ASUS?

It is so close to the RAM slots and creates so much heat.

Just today I got a 80mm fan and it is amazing in my opinion how effective it is and how now my RAM isn't even slightly warm to the touch. It is the temp it normally is when my computer isn't even on.

Not to mention, my video card is on avg 5 degrees C cooler.

It looks kind of silly because I literally have some sturdy thread along with strategic minimal taping that is keeping the 80mm fan in the correct spot, but I haven't ever really cared much for looks anyways.





I am glad I decided to finally take care of this and I don't think I will be buying a different heatsink which I am grateful for because although it sounds like fun, I am also sort of reluctant (scared).

The reason I was probably having problems with thinks freezing was probably because of over heating RAM because of their proximity to the NB passive heatsink. And, that is probably why towards the end of my old RAM I started getting many freezes and even got a BSOD once or twice because of a hardware problem.
