    If you mean you want to replace the passive heatsink, I think itīs unnecessary! :rolleyes: (if that is what you mean!) My A7N8X temp is 28-30C and I think it wonīt even warm up very much even if you OC...but this is just my opinion! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Hey, you can do what ever you want, but if you want to put some 50mm 6000rpm fan on it, the noise will be terrible and you wonīt probably get much benefit from it! :rolleyes2 :rolleyes2 :)

    I use a Thermaltake Crystal orb on my Northbridge, w/ AS3, and on the SB I just slapped the old HS on it w/ AS3. I have an extra Crystal orb tho, that I don't know what to do w/. A Crystal Orb is too large to fit on the Southbridge. :thumb:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    If the Crystal Orb is to big, Thermaltake also have the smaller Blue and Orange Orbs though these may need a little lappin'.

    Since we have the same mobo, I think I'll go with your setup. Are you seeing some nice temps, better than before?

    Also, how does the Orb attach to the chipset? Clips? Or do you use some adhesive (I know artic silver has some).
