Solved Adding Extra Cooling to Gigabyte z68ap-d3 Tags: Motherboards Cooling Gigabyte Overclocking Last response: April 21, 2012 9:08 AM in Overclocking Share nib_Star April 14, 2012 5:39:29 AM I own a gigabyte z68ap-d3 motherboard. I believe that the board it self has sufficient stock cooling heat sinks. My last motherboard's south bridge had burned do to overheating and this time I am a bit more cautions about my overclocking. So my question, and hopefully some of you understand this better than I do, would it help if I was to add additional 'Heat Sinks' to my motherboard for more sufficient cooling and long term longevity? I have attached some photos where I am thinking of adding these sinks.. let me know your opinion and expertise please More about : adding extra cooling gigabyte z68ap Best solution gary1 a b V Motherboard a b K Overclocking April 14, 2012 6:35:27 AM I wouldn't bother.
