    Default Intel d975xbx2 build

    Building a Intel d975xbx2 m.b. and I was wondering if anyone had any cooling issues as far has room for cooling devices (very large north bridge heatsink). I was thinking of using a artic freezer pro7 but when reading comment from other sights, people were saying to make sure you have room for this monster of a cooler. I havn't purchased the m.b. yet was hoping for a little feedback as far as very good cooling that will fit this board with out water cooling. This is my first build and was hoping for as little mods. as possible. Thanks.
