    Best replacement IC7 NB Cooler

    What Northbridge cooler is best to replace the abit default? Mine has gotten VERY noisey.

    Links to the people who sell them would be great too

    Thanks.

    Says it only fits boards with mounting holes. The IC7 doesn't have them, does it?

    my is7 board has some wierd clips for attaching the nb fan, rather than the ones on my amd boards, might have to get a zalman and attach it with thermal paste/adhesive, as its the noisest thing in the whole computer not sure it the ic7 is similar to the is7 tho? i'm pretty sure the zalmans come with some adhesive anyway

    mine was very noisy too. I took it off and oiled it up some (peel sticker off back and use something like mineral oil) then remounted it with thermal goo (instead of TIM)

    Your fan is probably about to die. When mine did, I replaced it with a Thermaltake Tiger Chipset cooler: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...oolers_57.html which I am having no problems with (it clips on like the original). Alternatively you could contact abit and ask for a replacement, (orderparts@abit.nl) but you will most likely be waiting a month until they send you a replacement.

    Mine is fine now. You just have to catch if before they go bad. IF you oil them as soon as they start to whine, they're usually fine for another 6 months - a year... then oil again.

    But that looks pretty cool. I assume it popped right in place... since it looks like the wires would line up perfectly.

    I like Abit's new orb design. If they send me one of those that would be cool!

    P.S. I just added one to my newegg.com basket... I'll keep it in there until my next order since its only $3.99. (with just as much shipping by itself)
