    Default Ex58 Extreme help please

    Hiya all<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    Would anyone with this mb be running it without the extra cooling on the chipset as I realy need the extra pcie slot covered by the heatsink.<o:p></o:p>
    I am currently running sys i7/920 2.6 @3.4 and am happy with that overclock but may be giving off more chipset heat than normal.
    Thanks for any help in advance guys/girls.<o:p></o:p>

    You will be fine without the added heatsink. You do mean the extra one you add in manually correct?

    The one that comes stock installed on the board, that is also connected to the mosfets, needs to be there but you do not have to install the secondary extra one.

    You can leave it off and if the NB is warmer than you want you can point a 80MM fan at it or something like that, that will help a lot.
