Hi all

I have a Asus P5N-d mobo, q6600 cpu, XFX gts 250 Graphics card and a 4gig 800Hz ram. My north Bridge is getting really hot. How hot? Icant put my hand on it for more than +-2 seconds. My system is not overclocked. I Have recently put a fan on my heatsink that dropped the temp about 5 degrees. I want to put water cooling on my NB and SB but the problem comes in on da NB coz it has two chips under that HUGE heatsink. Look

Any comments?

Thanks in advanced

Hi, probably a bit late but..
My mobo was overheating at the NB. I solved it by using existing heatsink and mounting a 80mm (noctua) fan using only 2 screws set to the bottom of the heatsink.
I have been using it for a good while now and it seems to work just fine.
