Default Re: Northbridge way to hot??? HELP!

The front a rear fans should make quite a difference as there will be much better airflow. What I would do is to makesure all the cables are neat and tidy(zip ties etc), to allow the air from the front to pass over the NB heat sink. I would try to get their ide cable way out of the way or mod it to make it round or use a round one if possible (I am glad I don't have to deal with IDE cable anymore).
