Chipset Cooler?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys well the new motherboard i am getting comes with a bogstandered Heatsink on the Chipset..so i went out an bout an Akasa chipset cooler with thermal adhesive as the fixing method on the bottom..Will this make a big diff to temps??

The new cooler : http://www.thecoolingshop.com/produc...oducts_id/1372

Mobo with bogstandered heatsink: http://www.techfever.co.uk/products.asp?recnumber=2540

I was also wondering if temps wont change that much by replacing the chipset cooler..shall i put the akasa one on the southbridge chipset..which is th little one down the bottom.

Also just wondering what is the normal runnig temp of a chipset and what temp drop can you see me getting with this akasa cooler ?? thanks guys

I think you may see about a 10-20 degree drop, but you will see that if you mount a 40mm fan to the stock heatsink.

The chipset will probably idle around 30 C and load around 36 C. With the akasa cooler it will be about 24 C idle and 26 C load. Moving air makes a BIG difference on chipsets. I'd get some thermal tape and put the passive heatsink on the southbridge, you might aswell. The southbridge doesnt get very hot. Why are you buying as ASRock board though? They are bad overclockers I can tell you that. My friend has a 2.0 northwood and an ASRock board and it went to 2.4 no problem but above that and it wouldnt even post. Also, the bios is very confusing. They dont have voltage ammounts, it will say something like:

DRAM voltage: low, normal, high

Its very hard to overclock and changing voltages is a pain unless you want to monitor it with a voltmeter. It doesnt tell you how much voltage low, normal or high is. The stock heatsink should come off easily. Just make sure to clean off all the old thermal paste/tape before putting the akasa cooler on there.

How hot would you say the southbridge gets then just out of pure interest.
