    Well, I am in the market for a few chipset coolers, and I would like to know, whats good.

    I was surprised to find only two viable options, a Thermaltake that appears that it cannot attach to a normal chipset... 4$

    And I found the Zalman, I'm sure all of you have seen. The Zalman!! is 5$.

    But that is it! No more options??? I am aware of the Crystal Orb, and Vantec's version, but they are too big for most instances. I am also looking for some cheap-o ones that I could use on south-bridges?

    Thx for your help... :thumb: :thumb:

    btw, what is the best Thermal Adhesive product? :?:

    you found *me*? rofl... never knew there was a cooling product named after me : party ha
    I'm using the TT Crystal Orb on my R9000 Pro, works great, but its originally designed as a chipset cooler... I paid around $12CDN for it

    You might want to ask some folks that are removing those NB fans to trade for passive coolers and quieter running. I have a couple in my parts drawer. Is there any particular reason you're wanting to put an active fan on your SB? From what I've read, at best you'd need a passive heatsink added as they just don't get that hot.
    Swiftech makes a radical NB chipset cooler that I ran into when researching my watercooling blocks. There's a review of it here. If THAT doesn't cool your chipset down, nothing will!
    :cheers:
