Looks like you're SOL with that GPU cooler. The only thing that came to mind is the Thermalright HR-05-SLI, but even that may not even work unless you use a narrower fan for your GPU. See a review here. Another brand makes one similar to this, but I can't remember what it was.


I would just pick up a 30mm fan and screw it to stock heat sink. I used these before I upgraded my stock heat pipes. The screws hold pretty well between the heat fins. They even work on the mosfets. Also, make sure your replace the stock thermal paste underneath those stock heat pipes.

Here's a couple pictures showing you what I did:
  1. Here's that fan. You could just as easily mount it on the side rather than the top.
  2. This is what your thermal paste looks like from ASUS(if you haven't fixed that already)
  3. You can do this to your SB.
  4. Here is another use for those 30mm fans.

Is the stock thermal paste, no good then?

Suggestion- using multiple smaller fans on those GPU coolers may be more effective than the one big one. I noticed how the outer heatpipes are only passively cooled. If you added a couple 40mm fans on each end of those coolers, you may get better results by actively cooling them.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and that kicks @$$ how you are supporting your VGAs!

Yeah, it's dried up and doing absolutely nothing.

Every fan is blowing up cooling is excellent the NB is hot to the touch (OC 2.4 to 3.0) but I can keep me fnger on it without burning. While the fan is in the way its the heat sink that is really in then way. I have thought about adding active cooling to the fins off of the voltage regulators. Has anyone did this with measurable results (even stability ones). I did find one coller that might work I will try to find it again and post it for coments.

Thanks,
D

PS they were drooping about 1/4 in so I treaded some stainless steel rods I will post some picks or you can have a look at http://www.hardforum.com/showthread....186892&page=62

Just had it open for a photo shoot. I could have done it then
Oh well, putting a GTX 285 in there next month, so i'll do it then

I checked that out. Very cool man! You should start a thread on that with those pictures and see what kind of response you get from it.

I don't think any of those will work for your NB. I took some time staring at your pictures and I think the Thermalright HR-05-SLI will work for you, but you will need to remove that top GPU fan and get creative with the use of a few smaller fans to cool the two heatsinks together. The Thermalright HR-05-SLI should fit right between your 9700 and your GPU cooler.

That Vantec Iceberg would work very well for your SB though. Remove the AI sticker over the SB and use some Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive to stick it over the Stock ASUS heat block. That will make a heck of a difference on your SB temps. Also using fans on your Mosfets heatsinks will lower the connected chipset temps as well. Try some of those 30mm fans I suggested. You would have to remove the heat pipes to install them though.

EDIT: Do you have enough room in your case to mount those coolers below your VGAs rather than on top? That would solve your problem right there.

My north bridge is running at 82C. South bridge is at 60C. What happens to the warranty if you remove and apply arctic silver on these components?
