I know I probably don't need to, but I would like an improved cooler for the southbridge chipset on my Asus P5W DH Deluxe since I have a fairly big water cooling setup and it's very hot to the touch. <img src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Gunner2" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
It might even be limiting my overclock, although I'm not certain.<br />
<br />
Is there any cooler (of any type) that can actually fit onto the chipset here? Do note that the graphics card wafer of my 7950GX2 almost touches it as it is, so there isn't much of a height allowance.<br />
<br />
cheers.

It's a nice cooler, but looking at the pics it's definitely not going to fit with the graphics card, since with a single card it only gives 1 cm clearance.<br />
