I saw the Thermaltake NB heatsinks you guys are talking about. It doesn't cover the whole chip, right?

How's the bare chip hold up to the finger test?
Hmm... the south bridge shouldn't get hot enough, so there's no reason to apply a good thermal paste on it. North bridge should be your real and only concern. THAT's the one that gets hot, specially with this board.

Yeah, I was already modding my case/components, so I thought why not.

The DS3R also looks like it has a NB that gets hot.

It does have a slightly bigger heatsink, but I can't see that heatsink cooling much better than the DS3L.

I haven't heard too much commotion from DS3R people.

xbitlabs managed to melt their 4-pin connection when overclocking a QX6700 on this board. I read that 8-pin is better for this purpose but if no one has had problems with their 4-pin then i think this is a good board.

Here's what i'm talking about:

I read this xbitlab article a few months back. None the less, I went and build close to the same setup and haven't had the same problem, nor have I heard of this ever happening to anyone else. A one shot deal, a fluke. The 4pin socket is safer with the 45nm cpu's vs. the 65nm cpu's because they don't need the same power requirements. I don't think this should scare you from getting this mobo. gL

The Thermaltake hsf fits perfectly. The chip is in fact very small, about the size of a corn nut. The hs actually comes with a round donut shaped piece of foam that tapes to the bottom of the hs. That is what contacts the mb and the hs rests on top of the chip. just a very small amount of AS5, grain of rice sized, is all you need before you tighten down the pivoting arms. I have mine seated next to an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro and it fits fine.

The only issue that kinda scared me a bit was pulling off the stock NB sink. It appears they used ceramic compound at it made a snap after a bit of tugging to remove it. After the relief of seeing that I didn't rip my chip in half and the shiny stuff was ceramic all it took was my fingernail to scrape the residue off.

The SB chip is slightly warm to the touch even after playing some games. I think the stock HS with it's thermal pad is more then enough.

Dont know why you guys are complaning about heat on the NB.

mine is at +0.2 to the NB and the FSB

This thing dosent even get hot, warmish under full load.

If you want a hot NB and SB try a Nvidia chipset
