Northbridge cooling.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
On the mobo in my sig, the northbridge only has a passive heat sink attached. The highest oc I can get is 12 x 234. The FSB won't go any higher even at a lower multi. I have the chipset voltage maxed in the BIOS and still cannot go any higher. My cpu temp is 34c idle with the current oc. Would adding a fan to my northbridge allow me to go higher? I have PC4000 so the memory is capable.

I just put a zalman northbridge cooler on (passive).
My bigtyp blowing over it, now the pc is stable as a rock.

My advice: Get some other cooling block on your NB, so you don't have to put another fan on. 40mm fans are irritatingly noisy
