I asked something similar, some said, if it dosnt get that hot (check heatsink, then no)

Other said 'PUT IT BACK ON NOW' the heatsink isnt designed for that, but to be on the safe side, i put it back on, looking for a cheap heatsink to replace it.

lol, leave it to Abit with their crappy fans...those things must have a >50% death rate, lol. You're probably okay for a short while, but you will want to get a working fan on there eventually. A lot of board makers (like Asus and MSI, for example) used passive cooling on the 865/875 chips anyway, though granted their passive sink is larger than the active one abit uses.

 

You can never go wrong with one of These. B)

My Abit NB fan makes weird noises sometimes. I check it to make sure it is working. I just have to find one that I like then order it.

Another vote for the Swftech MCX159-R. It would be much quieter than the NB-1/NB-1c and cool just as well if not better. The MCX159-R is just a smaller version of their CPU heatsink, and I know for a fact that it works amazingly well.

too bad they dont make Tiger 1 anymore... it was so cheap plus its copper. But about abit fans... it sucks. but the rest of mobo are good. i'd just stick a Zalman hs on there if you wanna replace it.
