Ha, and this is the biggest case I own! Adding those 2 140s makes it quite cozy, yes. But it all works!

In my next build, I'd like to do a bit more research on a good case that has more built-in fans with positive pressure to ensure good air movement. I saw a good review on a past Tekzilla show, but my head wasn't in "new build" mode. The case oriented the mainboard 90 degrees and allowed for airflow to move from bottom of the case to top. Heat rises, right?

Has anyone replaced the chipset pushpins for a Nut/Bolt setup?

I don't think the pushpins are giving me enough pressure after changing the factory cement for AS5.

It can be done.

A few words of caution: Just be careful not to over tighten the nuts to the bolts. If you get them to tight you could snap the mobo and any traces that may be in that area

try this.. couldn't hurt.

Enableing CoolBits;

Step 1. Click on your Start Menu in the Windows Task Bar and select Run. When the command box opens, type "regedit" (without the quotes) and press OK. With the registry editor open, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \\SOFTWARE \\NVIDIA Corporation \\Global \\NVTweak (expand the menu using the "+" expansion buttons to locate this menu item). Click on "NVTweak" in the menu. Next, right-click on the empty space inside right window and choose "New>DWORD value". Name the value "Coolbits" (without the quotes).

Step 2. Within the Registry Editor, right click on Coolbits and choose Modify. Change the Value data to "18" (without the quotes) and click OK. Exit the Registry Editor.

it is for the memory differance {512mb vs 1gb to run sli} but maybe it will help for your issue.

with AS5 you really do not need a lot of pressure. as it gets warm it softens up and will spread evenly under light pressure. it will take a few cycles of getting warn then cooling down as the normal cure, but it will also thin out between contact points.

The stock TIM is hard and rather thick so when replacing it with a regular TIM there is less pressure on the chipset heatsinks.
I have replaced both TIM and pushpins on two of my boards and it did improve chipset cooling a bit.

yes it will improve it, but you still do not need a lot of pressure on the heat sinks for it to work. the stock is hard your right, but it works the same way. when it gets hot it will soften up allowing it to be compressed easy. that's why there is little pressure on them to begin with. also, i don't think the added pressure will really help much, maybe 1*C max. the big improvement comes from the better TIM. i wouldn't worry about using bolts and nuts unless your going water or better where the heat sink is design to be mounted at a specific tension lvl.

First, thanks for taking the time to look this up.

But I'll let the cat out of the bag now since you brought this up. I've decided to part ways with my SE card and have a another proper 460 on the way. Should be here Monday. I don't want to muck with registry at this time because I want see the OS properly discover and activate SLI mode on its own.

With my SE card running now, I completed both Crysis and Crysis Warhead. The games were run with High mode and played flawlessly. The only slowdown occurred on both final boss battles where I noticed FPS dropped.

I'm trying Dead Island now and this seems to run okay at full settings.
