    It looks like the southbridge heatsink uses push pins for mounting it to the motherboard.
    You might be able to improve cooling the chip where you:
    1. remove the heatsink
    2. clean the old thermal interface material (TIM) using 91% pure rubbing alcoho
    3. apply a small thin layer of tim to the top of the chip
    4. reinstall the heatsink
    Another option is to install an 80mm cooling fan to blow air across the top of the heatsink.
    Your English is fine

    I am afraid to change the chipset, so I was thinking of buying a 80mm or 90mm fan and install on the side of the case, would be cooler on the chipset, but with a distance.
    Does it help ?

    I'm glad that google translator can make sense of my posts

    Check out MSI N460GTX Hawk (1GB) Overclocking Results, posts #81 and #83, where I installed a 92mm cooling fan for my graphics card. I used plastic cable ties to secure the fan. I think that the best heatsink cooling will be with the fan very close to the heatsink. A cooling fan installed on the side of the case might work well if you use a cardboard tube as a fan shroud to focus the airflow dircectly to the heatsink.
    I am afraid to change the chipset
    You wouldn't be replacing the chip, you would be removing the heatsink only, cleaning both parts and then applying new TIM. You might have to remove the motherboard from the computer case to remove the heatsink and apply new TIM. This should be somewhat easier than applying TIM to your cpu.

    don't know when you have bought it, if there is still warranty, returning it for an exchange might be an option if you don't want to mess with it yourself

    Apparently the southbridge heatsink runs hot.
    Check out MCP too hot! Help.
    From the first post in the thread:
    Hello friends. I have the current specs from my sig.
    I had a 9600GT before and i purchased a few days ago a GTS 450 gpu to replace my older card. I installed my new graphics card into the PCi-Ex slot then i reinstalled windows 7 x64..after that the drivers etc. standard procedure.
    When i had my 9600gt and my old windows 7 x64 the MCP stood at 51-54C, now it's dead still at 65C and 67-70C if i play games or use CAD software. The radiator is so hot i can't even hold my hand on it for more than a seccond. The room temperature is always the same, the case is always open, the video card doesn't generate heat, the CPU is runing cold (maxim 38C in full load)
    Can you, please, explain to me what is rising my MCP temp ?

    I believe it is as I said, because it's southbridge and northbridge together. Besides being a NVDIA chipset, which are generally warmer. And do not forget, this is Brazil, temperatures usually above 30 .

    Let us know if you add a cooling fan to help lower temperatures and how much it helps. This will help others who are looking to lower temperatures. You might want to perform a quick test where you remove the computer case side cover and place a desk fan next to the case to blow air directly into your case. A 10 inch (250mm) or somewhat smaller fan on low or medium speed will definitely help.

    I'll buy a 80mm or 90mm fan, and install on the side of the case, and after the test reports the results.
    PS: I want to buy this week.

    Thumbs up Re: N68c-s

    A 90mm or 92mm fan will usually be quieter and spin slower than most 80mm fans and usually will provide more air flow. For about $10 (USD) you can buy an excellent Arctic Cooling PWM fan; 80mm, 92mm or 120mm. I bought the Arctic F 92mm fan for my system. It has a fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) for longer life and quieter operation. The 4-pin fan connector should easily connect to an available 3-pin fan header on your motherboard. The fan prices on their web page do NOT include shipping charges from Asia.

    The attached picture is from page 11 in your motherboard user manual and shows that the Nvidia Geforce 7025 integrated graphics are part of the nForce 630a chipset.
    Good luck with your cooling fan setup
