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

Because of the orientation of the fins on the northbridge sink it will be hard to get good airflow on the important middle fins unless you use a side panel fan or 3rd party northbridge cooler,
I can see how the T fin would catch some air but 3rd party is better as your ram will block good flow.

I use Akasa Cool Blue AK-210's (North and Southbridges) with arctic alumina epoxy but like I said before the Zalman is very good if you have the good flow
