Has anyone else had any problems with the Extreme Spirit II chipset heatsinks on this board?

I had to RMA my SB heatsink cause the fan got noisy and RPM's slowed way down. The first one lasted 2 weeks, I ran it without a fan for a while cause I was out of town for a month. Now I got a new one and it's been about 2 weeks and it's starting to do the same thing. I wouldn't think it should go out that fast. The NB heatsink has done fine, just been the SB heatsink. I have it plugged into OPT1 fan port on the MB, the NB heatsink is plugged into OPT2. I guess I'm gonna have to buy a fan for it and maybe get better quality.
