Ive got two of these on the way, one for NB and one for SB. I hear from this thread that they work well, and if you do indeed have this MB, be sure to find a cooling solution for the mosfets!

this is the solution i chose

I have one of these Thermalright HR-05 IFX/SLI they are about $25 and shipping was $7. It keeps my NB very cool and you can even attach a 80mm fan to it!

I would not recommend that for newer motherboards like yours. It would've been fine in the celeron D age, but not now. I would suggest this for the north bridge, this for the south bridge, and one of these kits to put on your mosfets. The cost of replacing stock motherboard cooling unfortunately. And yes petras ships internationally and quite fast.

Below is a picture of what the mosfets on your board look like. Cooling the mosfets can help with overclocks and stability.

best NB cooler? I win

But in all seriousness... it's between the thermaltake extreme spirit II and thermalright HR-05 series...

Personally, I like the thermalright HR-05 SLI/IFX... the thing has heatpipes that bend the cooler out of the way of large CPU HSFs as well as a large enough surface area to accommodate an 80mm fan

This will fit on my chipset will i need to seat the tiny little chip with as5 paste

Since the chipset is an exposed core, you'll probably want to pre-spread the AS5 (use your finger in an inside out plastic bag) to ensure full contact

Or, if you're willing to wait, Xigmatek just recently announced a northbridge heatsink with an exposed heatpipe on the bottom. I'm actually thinking of replacing my Thermalright HR-05 with one since my HR-05 is very close to touching my CPU heatsink. The Xigmatek Porter heatsink has better clearance.
