chipset hsf question

Recommended Posts

My 3rd rma board has just been replaced and a new one is in the mail back to me. I replaced the psu thinking that might be the problem, but I would also like to replace the factory heat sink. That part of the mobo has been the problem with the previous 3 boards, getting too hot and killing the board according to the rma people.

I am looking for a more aggressive way to cool the chipset by air. I can do some modding but if there is a product out there to buy and just pop in, that would be better. Really do not trust those tape on deals, was looking for something that would use the factory holes to secure it.

Any help would be great, thanks.
