Northbridge Cooler?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi guys, i was hoping for some help on seeing what northbridge cooler would fit on my system. and obviously what's a good value.
i heard the northbridge runs hot on the DS3 when overclocked?

currently i'm using:
a slighty modded Antec 900.
Scythe Ninja Plus Rev.B
Gigabyte 965P-DS3

My cpu temps are at about 17 degrees @ idle

i'm hoping for something futureproof. so it should be able to mount an 8800 eventually.

anychance you guys can help me out?

Thermaltake Spirit II works great.

Thermalright HR-05 is also a great NB cooler.

The Thermalright HR-05 should give enough clearance. You may need to hard-mount it, as sometimes it can be loose. Though it does not look like much, I have heard only good things about the Swiftech MCX159-CU.

Where the devil are you?! I like the Zalman NB cooler, it performs on par with noisier solutions.
