hi there people, My mobo is running so nicely, except that it is overheating and that causes my OS to freeze, I know it because it happens when I close the side cover from the case and also when i touch the little green square (which says PCIe Express 2.0) it almost burns my finger.
I dismounted the motherboard and heat-sinks (all 4 tied together, the 2 squares, the one below the cpu and mosfet)) to clean and replace thermal paste (it was a disaster the way it was), and the computer was a lot better, but... I had to install a 120mm fan at a very strange (and it is noisy) spot so it can blow some air.
Computer did not freeze again, but now I need to take that fan away so I can use my PCI slots and calm that noise....
.. but I don't know which fan would be compatible with my mobo..
Would you please share some light here??
Thanks a lot, if there is something I should know before proceeding please inform me...
