    Ok, even so, there is some componentry in the area, and so I doubt you will be able to fit a crystal orb on it, your best bet would probably be one of the tall zalman northbridge coolers, it is the only northbridge cooler i can think of off hand that doesn't exceed the dimentions of the chip.

    have you tried dropping your multiplier down to like 11 or so? also try setting your voltage to about 110% of the stock voltage and try that :)

    Duh..... I guess I should have stated that, and played around with it before I opened my big fingers and typed that....I started to play around with it and I am now getting this....Also if anyone gets a southbridge cooler worked up let me see some pics of it, My poor south bridge is smokin!!!!! :flames: I installed an old 133 fan on my northbridge so I hope that is enough to cool it, still using the stock Epox HS tho, I have a Blu Orb around here someplace anyone think it will do a better job of cooling the Northbridge?
