Chipset coolers. Which one?

Once I get my ASUS A8V board back from repair I want to replace the stock K8T800 chipset heatsink with something a bit more substantial.

After examining the duff board I noticed some blistering and discolouration of the laquer under the Northbridge chip. I believe this is where the problem is.

ASUS used to put fans on these but peeps complained about the noise.

Does anyone know of a cooler assembly that would replace the stock heatsink? I don't wanna go drilling holes in the board because the lugs don't line up.

(Someone on another forum suggested that, I'm thinkin )

I'd look in to the Theramlright HR-05 and then put a fan on it. It's compatible with about every current chipset mounting situation and being from Thermalright it's gotta be a good performer.

I've got a (so far unfitted) ThermalTake Blue Ice cooler

XMS has one on his P5B and apparently it's an excellent little cooler

Thanks FragTek.

'Scuse me while I Google

BTW. Are we having maintenance on the forum today? I keep getting "XML parsing failed: syntax error (Line: 1978, Character: 249)" when I click the "Overclock3D Forums" index link.

No problems here, but I believe XMS is testing some functionality

could take a look on titan vga cooler, used it as chipset cooler since nf2 and its a good fan and last long.

around 1-1.5 years for m and im very sensitive to the sound a bad fan does.

takes a couple of minuts to change the fan when needed and have mine running through a resistor to lower the rpm from 4500 to 3000 which makes it deadsilent.

The Jing Ting Forcetake Chipforce (JTS 0006) Offset Chipset cooler is a real good chipset cooler. Just ordered one for myself after reading some reviews.

I've heard great things about the Jing Ting heatsinks, let us know how you like it when it comes in. It will be nice to see a forum member comment on this product.
