    Replacment Chipset fan for Asus A8NSLI Deluxe

    Anyone know a good replacment, the original fan on mine packed up ages ago but i did manage to get a second hand exact replacment, the fan has packed up on that too now.

    I have enough air flow to keep it cool with out replacing the fan but was wondering in there was a good alternative to use that will not get in the way of my videocard, the original HSF is about 16mm tall.

    It beats me why the early nForce4 boards were ever allowed onto the market with those horrible, whining little fans - apart from the racket, it was obvious they were hardly designed with longevity in mind.

    A decent passive replacement like the Zalman or something from Thermalright will be much, much better in all respects - depending on your mobo layout and the size of your graphics card, you may need to go for an offset model like this.

    Sorry if I did not make it clear but the Zalman I have linked definitely fits, as I fitted one to my A8NSLI Deluxe & my brothers.

    Second vote for the Zalman, mine has had one for years. The board is now in it's 4th machine and still going strong!

    I fitted that too my K8N Neo2. Worked wonders although I did trim a few fins down to clear my Graphics card.

    Re: Replacment Chipset fan for Asus A8NSLI Deluxe

    Thanks for the replies.

    I will need to check the clearance under my Videocard but looking at the temps for the chipset in the bios I can leave the original heatsink on there and just unplug the fan as my case has enough air flow (it should do as it is prity noisy).
    Chipset temp is around 34 even after heavy gaming.

    Thermalright HR05 although much more expensive would do the job better. That zalman is good though.

    Re: Replacment Chipset fan for Asus A8NSLI Deluxe

    Those temps sound pretty good, does your video card cause some draught around the northbridge then?

    Love that bonkers cooler though, looks like CoolingShop have some in stock.

    I have a GTS250 which blows out of the back of the case, temps are good because I am using an Old Antec SX840 case which has three intake fans, one on the Hdd is a generic Antec fan which came with the case and the other two are fairly powerfull YSTech fans, the chipset is in the air flow of these fans, I also have two more of the YSTech fans as outakes on the back of the case.

    Result is my temps are prity good but the system is noisy, its ok then gaming as the music/sound masks the noise

    How about you start at the top of the thread you've just posted in (appropriately entitled "Replacment Chipset fan for Asus A8NSLI Deluxe"), work down, and you'll see several very good suggestions...

    I posted the same problem several months back, I used the following:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Zalma...hbridge-Cooler

    The only issue with it is that I had to use the 2nd PCI-e x16 slot as my card and its cooler clashed - but it does have a very large cooler on it

    Same problem (albeit on an A8N-E), also used the Zalman.

    The motherboard completely conked out shortly afterwards, however, so I can't say how well it performs over time - but I expect it would have continued to do the job.
