    One final random thought after profJims post. My old 9850 setup used the same chipset for a while but on a gigabyte mainboard. Mine (the BIOS) only had the option to pick what GFX was preffered, PCI or onboard, not to turn the onboard off.
    I never had that heat problem, but I also used an ATI HD GFX card in it and not a Nvidia.
    So now my thought, since you run a Nvidia card and have the drivers for those installed, Windows suddenly knows what to do with the onboard GFX part and that might be why it's running so hot.

    Maybe your ASrock board BIOS' is better then mine was and will allow you to turn of the onboard GFX completely and thereby fix your problem. Maybe you also got a ATI HD4750 or similar GFX card around you could try for a test.

    But if the extra fan works good (and it should), it is ofcourse the easiest and cheapest solution if something has to be changed.
    My advice - never visit a short-url, no matter who gives it to you. You can't trust any source at any time when you don't know your target

    I have a 80mm fan of low quality and decid to try something.
    I took that air duct, which comes on the side of the original case, which sits atop the processor, and put on the chipset, + Duct Fan.

    I did a stress test, and managed to keep at 54 °, which previously amounted to 70-78 °.

    Sorry, but now my english is very ugly.

    Thanks for the update.
    Let us know if you install a larger fan and how well it works.
    Ugly English? Nope, your post is easy to understand ;)

    I'll buy a good fan of 92mm and install along with the tube, leaving approximately 2 cm away from the chipset, I'll post the answer here, please do not close the topic.

    profJim thank you for your attention.

    From page 18 of the ASRock N68C-S motherboard user manual:
    2.5 Easy Multi Monitor Feature
    This motherboard supports Multi Monitor upgrade. With the internal onboard VGA and the external add-on PCI Express VGA card, you can easily enjoy the benefits of Multi Monitor feature. Please refer to the following steps to set up a multi monitor environment:
    1. Install the NVIDIA® PCI Express VGA card to PCIE2 (PCIE x16 slot). Please refer to page 17 for proper expansion card installation procedures for details.
    2. Connect the D-Sub monitor cable to the VGA/D-Sub port on the I/O panel of this motherboard. Connect another D-Sub monitor cable to the VGA/D-Sub connector of the add-on PCI Express VGA card. Connect the DVI-D monitor cable to the VGA/DVI-D connector of the add-on PCI Express VGA card.
    3. Boot your system. Press <F2> to enter BIOS setup. Enter “Share Memory” option to adjust the memory capability to [16MB], [32MB], [64MB], [128MB] or [256MB] to enable the function of onboard VGA/D-sub. Please make sure that the value you select is less than the total capability of the system memory. If you do not adjust the BIOS setup, the default value of “Share Memory”, [Auto], will disable onboard VGA/D-Sub function when the add-on VGA card is inserted to this motherboard.
    4. Install the onboard VGA driver to your system. If you have installed the onboard VGA driver already, there is no need to install it again.
    Step 5 deals with winXP and win7 setup for a multi-monitor display.

    Hello again. I performed more tests in a new way.

    Information test passed (fan + tube) on the side of the case.

    I gave up that way because it generated too much noise.

    Information of the new test:

    The new test was performed with the same fan (that bad) I decided to remove the fan from the side, and puts it closer to the chipset.

    Below the pictures of the test:
    Link to the album: ImageShack Album - 12 images

    notes:

    After this test, I decided that this is the best that was in my hands, I did not want to shake the chipset.
    And a very good thing, was that the fan was extremely attached(fixed, arrasted,I'm sorry but this verb is very hard.) hehe.

    Test results:
    Recalling that the previous temperature without the side fan was 70-78 ° C.

    Ambient temperature: 26 ° C
    Processor: 47 ° C
    Core 1: 43 ° C
    Core 2: 43 ° C
    Core 3: 43 ° C
    Core 4: 43 ° C
    Aux: 32 ° C
    GPU: 28 ° C
    MCP: 54 ° C

    Test time: 10 minutes


    PS:I will still buy a better cooler and 90mm +, so I will post more results.

    Question Re: N68c-s

    What is the gray part that is on top of the chipset heatsink?
    It looks like this part will trap heat from the heatsink and will interfere with cooling air from your new fan.
    Can the gray part be easily removed?
    You will probably need to hold the gold colored heatsink securely with one hand while you carefully remove the gray part.
    You might be better off if you leave the gray part where it is while you first test with your new fan.

    edit: Looking at the motherboard picture in post #12, the gray part is not blocking any cooling fins on the heatsink. Removing the gray part probably will not be needed for optimal cooling with your new cooling fan.

    The gray part, an invention is horrible, I put thermal paste (TIM) in the sink.
    Should I remove it or leave anyway? (It's the thermal paste that comes with the Cooler Master Hyper TX3)

    It is hard to say if the gray part is helping or hurting with chipset cooling. This part might make the chipset hotter by trapping heat. If this part comes loose, it might cause a short circuit. With an extra cooling fan for the heatsink, I think that you will have better overall cooling with your "horrible invention" removed. The best heatsink cooling is where there is a lot of surface area to remove heat. The solid gray part might be causing slightly higher chipset temperatures. With your new cooling fan installed, it will also cool the motherboard area near the chipset.
