    You could either screw it onto the heatsink, sometimes if you find the right screw it will just fit right between the fins.

    Or you could super glue or hot glue it on there, or even use paper clips or zip ties.

    Just get creative, you will find a way for sure!

    For the mosfet's, which is around the CPU, just leave that tape on there. If it comes off as you remove the heatsink assembly, just place the pads back over all the mosfet chips to be sure they are all covered, before you place the full heatsink back on.

    Same applies to the SB if it is connected, if not you can leave it as it rarely gets hot. Then just redo the past on the northbridge, use non conductive paste and be careful when you put the heatsink back on as that is a naked chip. I am not sure of the brand you mention, I would use something good such as TX-2 or MX-2 for the NB. Actually I would use it for the NB and CPU myself, this is what I use TX-2, much better than Arctic Silver and is non conductive.

    Well you could buy one of those fans you mentioned for them on ebay, or you could just buy a "Antec Spot Cool". Or mount a 80mm fan to the part of your case just above the board pointing downward onto them.

    Yeah.. Cool.. The Arctic Silver Ceramique looks pretty good.. Its a strong paste, had a look at it today.

    I have an Antec Spot Cool, which aren't overly effective imho.

    I will wait for my CPU chip to come, which it will have to do eventually.

    Once I have a PSU as well I can run a soaptest, and see what my temperatures are.

    If it cools it down to a level I'm happy with, I'll leave the mobo alone - especially if it is working.

    I'll then just concentrate on clearing my credit cards so that, in a years time, I can blow a decent amount of money on a really impressive PC and recycle parts by letting the old man have them.

    It's fairly thick and OLD, I would actually advise TX-2 or MX-2 for your NB
