Various Thermalright Questions for DS3L

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I have a bunch of questions so here we go!
1. I'm assuming the HR-09 Type 4 mosfet cooler will work with the GA-P35-DS3L board (but I could be wrong). My question is will it fit with the thermalright 120 extreme?
2. Will the HR-05 IFX fit as well? If not what would be a good recommendation.
3. Is anyone having temp problems with the mosfet and northbridge on this board while decent/heavy overclocking?
4. Any other aircooling things I should do?

I have the antec 900 case, but I use an air conditioning filter (search for my post to see a picture of it!) in the front which impedes the airflow significantly although I figure it's better than having no airflow as I don't clean my case. Initially I was all for TEC/water/phase but then reality hit me and so I need to save some money up.

Any suggestions will be great, but I don't want to ghetto rig a 40mm fan to the NB (which I have done in the past) or any other variant that looks bad.

The P35 NBs are surprisingly cool while OCing... you shouldn't need aftermarket cooling for the chipsets even with heavy overclocks (My other rig is a Blood Iron BTW)... HOWEVER, the HR-05 IFX probably won't fit with a TRUE mounted horizontally... the HR-05 SLI/IFX are a lot more versatile - you should look at those instead

From what I know, the Type 4 HR-09 was specifically designed for the 680i, 780i and 790i (which previous HR-09s did not accommodate)... For the Gigabyte DS3L, you'll want to look at the Type 1 or Type 2 (Upright or Slanted - your choice)

Lol yes I saw your post of the blood iron and thought that was hilarous. Either way though, I plan to keep this computer for 2 or 3 more years and I'm moving to desert climate so cooler would be better. I'll go check into the other NB coolers. How about mosfet? Is it one of those hyped ideas that really make no difference?
I want to get a bit of longevity out of my computer, with minor upgrades a long the way.

1: I looked for compatibility with my own P965-DS3 motherboard, and I was listed as "incompatible" for all types of the HR-09. Reason being (to my understanding) that you need mounting holes in order to securely fasten those heatsinks, and the lower-end Gigabyte boards do not have such holes. Thermalright should have a chart that covers your particular board however.
2: I'm pretty sure he's right on the northbridge cooler as well - you'll need the SLI/IFX version not the standard IFX in order to ensure proper clearance between the two heatsinks.
3: I don't have your board, but I do know that my own P965 chipset board does run a bit hotter than I'd like in the summer when it's at 400MHz. I believe P35 runs a fair bit cooler however, so I can't say for sure if this problem carries over to you as well.
4: Pick up the Thermalright T-Rad GPU cooler when it's released, it looks awesome.
