I could not find any information on northbridge coolers. I think my northbridge heat is preventing me from stability at my current clock speed. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on chipset coolers.
no heat pipe no fan just a heatsink. and that thing gets hot enough to melt flesh. even when my cpu is really hot, it never throttles before a crash/reboot. which is why i think my oc limit is based on northbridge heat. also a tech at corsair told me he thought the chipset overheating was the issue.

Try this one.
I have the heat pipes on my mobo but would by it if I didnt
wusy's Idea is the best and proven.(use it on my southbridge)

what is your cooling/temps
My temps were a little high (64C) 1 hour Ortho’s. Priority 9
I ordered a new swiftech rad but still waiting to receive it.
If I get the temps I want then I will do a follow up post.

You’re really stuck on high front side bus aren’t you
My experience with 500 FSB isn’t very stable.
Yes the clocks are extreme but the pci express video slots revert to 1x lane width on a lot of P5b boards when you push it too hard.
To me if I can’t run it 24/7 I won’t post it.
That’s not a feat of accomplishment to fry my rig.
I’ll leave that to the Extreme members.
