Sure..Thermalright HR-05-SLI High-Riser Northbridge Cooler

$24.95, or less depending where you buy from.

If my temps are being read right, 52c @ load prior, 37c max with this.

As yes, I was thinking about getting one of those guys before, but there was no way it would work on a DFI Lanparty Expert. I wonder if it fits on a 780i...

I have 2x40mm Akasa blue fans running and don't hear a peep from them on full with everything else turned down,
only if I put my ear up close to them, then I can hear something.

How do you mount your 40mms for that? I've used Zalman NB heatsinks before, they're fantastic, but adding any extra cooling if desired looks tough.

I was making a side comment about loud 40mm fans ,I dont use a Zalman NB cooler as it was easier for me to just stick fans on.
I add quote now.

My case is very quiet ,There wasnt a peep from my so called "loud" raptors either.

The fans are both on a controller though which lessens the speed even at full.
