QX6700 H2O cooling. What happens to heat-pipe?

When the fan for the CPU is not used because you're watercooling it,
what happens to the chipset heat-pipe that relies on the CPU fan to dissipate the heat? How is this addressed? Are there retail aftermarket clip-on fans for the heat-pipe that would solve this? Any and all suggestions are welcomed.
Thank you in advance.

  1. Some motherboards, like my ASUS, come with an auxiliary fan for this purpose. Check Newegg, you should find fans there just for this purpose.

    and if you can't find one you can alway ghetto mod a fan over the NB-heatsink-pipe-thingy
