Ok, I took that freakin thing off and I found that it had like some apoxy type of glue and some really thick thermalpad on it. This was on both the northbridge and southbridge, I cleaned it with acetone and reapplyed it with MX-2. This droped my temps about a full 5c over the "stock" stuff. My question is I want to totally get rid of that thing and I need a recommendation of a very good NB heatsink and for the SB too. I looked at Enzotech and Thermalright, but I cant make my mind up.

Suggestions?

And im in Crossfire, so it would have to be a low profile SB HS
