Southbridge active cooling question..???

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone.. I was wanting to get a active cooling solution for the southbridge of my NF3 UT. 57C is kinda high just sitting at the desktop. I need to know what will fit. I will also be ordering a MASSCOOL/SYTRIN KuFormula VF1-PLUS Dual Heat Pipes VGA Cooler for my 6800 ultra and need to know what, if any active cooling will interfere with that cooler. I was looking at this for the southbridge..

will that fit the pin out holes and not interfere with this vga cooler

Problem is, there is no other fans I can point there. There's a 120mm in front and one for exhuast in the Tt Armor case... Mayby I'll just try using a little double stick tape and a small fan.. I don't know..

I also have the Vantec, fits perfect on my board after just a smidge of filing on one edge of one of the mounting flanges. It was just slightly touching a cap right there… YMMV

 

 

 

BTW, there is no way to see the temp of the south bridge on a nf3 250gb, unless your using an external thermometer of some type

I do.. hardcano 12. I got a probe taped to the sink with frag tape..57.5C/136.4F

at idle and my ambient temp is 27C/80.6F right now.. when it goes under load it gets pretty hot. Definatly the hottest item in my rig... My CPU is running 36C with the fan is turned all the way [email protected] rpm. ;)
