I realy don't want to pull out the mobo but the NB is bothering me. I knew I should have looked when I had it out. Didn't want to screw anything up lol.
So I hear someone said ocz freeze would be good for the NB and SB if you do the fix?
Fans are a must, I think with this mobo, the stem on the spotcool screws off and will give you a few more ways to place it. I went 1 step more and got a 120x12 fan and mounted it right over my mobo tray cutout in my k62 .. That has cooled my nb very very well, although I do run 6 140mm's (4 intake and 2 on the top pulling out) and 2 120's on my h50.
I have had mine since early may (rev. 2 as well) and I just now, within the last 2 weeks have the airflow where I want it. My point? keep playing with the airflow as much as you can to get it right, every time I tried something different I would get A little better. Now my temps are GREAT( on the wifes laptop atm so cant post them) low 30s on nb-sb and 27c on cpu and with the 120 on the back of the mobo load temps never go into the 40's now
It can be done, just take your time and dont be afraid to think outside the box a little. Also I never took my heatsink off and was in 50,s as well when I first got this board.
