Mosfet and RAM cooling on an asus 870 evo

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
can anyone point out all the cpu mosfets on the 870 evo? I want to put some heatsinks on them so that they don't get too hot when I overclock

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=28902 (would these do?)

http://www.asus.com/websites/Global/...vLfBlh_500.jpg

Also should I get a RAM fan or some good heatspreaders if I want to push my cpu quite a bit?

are there any other precautions I need to think about?

thanks for any help...

if you see the chokes (they are the big cube like things near the CPU socket). then behind them towards the I/O ports is little black square things. they are your Mosfets. those little heatsinks you found will do fine if you point some air flow at them as well. but youll need 22 of them
