southbridge chip? cooling

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
looking at a nearly completed hand selected watercooling setup that had been abandoned b4 comletion, its to replace my aquagate all in one unit, he had the coolers designated places labeled
CPU-Swiftech Apogee GT (3/8)
Northbridge-Swiftech MCW30 (3/8)
Southbridge- Koolance CHC-A05 (1/4)
does the southbridge really need that much cooling thought it was mostly pci speeds and such??
and if so does anyone know how it would mount to this board have seen provisions for such Epox 9npaj-sli
Thanks

Im speaking from my own personal experience here. The Southbridge doesnt actually get that HOT. Not hot enough to get 3rd part cooling for it.
