Epox EP-9NPA+ SLi chipset cooling low clearance!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need suggestions on somekind of chipset cooler for my mobo because the chipset fan has gotten obnoxiously loud the clearance is only about 15mm's to thanks to it being under my vid card any suggestions?

For starters you could pitch a complaint to EPOX and maby they will send a new fan, then when you RnR it use AS5.
That MB like most of that series has the chip in just about the stupidest place possible
Thermalright has a Heat Pipe NB cooler but they do not list the EPOX at all in the compatibility section! It looks like it will fit IMHO but it's your call

Otherwise this will fit if your into some trimming!
