    new northbridge cooler

    http://www.thermaltake.com/coolers/chipset/a1899.htm

    if this has already been posted - i'm sorry.

    any one got one of these yet? personally i think it would crowd your PC too much, although it would make a great skt 7 cooler!

    LOL! Got to be needless overkill, probably for posers with big windows in their case. A good passive solution is more than sufficient. Well unless you go mad and even then a decent active solution is all that's needed.

    I dread to think of the cost of one of those!

    It can't be more than £20 as the aero's (larger fan) sell for about that much.

    9000rpm on a ~40mm fan, that would make your ears bleed i'm sure!

    prolly more of a gimmick than anything - do zalman make a nb heatsink for p4 mobos, because as i dont like the annoying whine of my p4 nb fan i've unplugged it , the heatsink (which is quite big anyway - its a is7-e mobo) gets warm, but not hot, but then again its not doing anything other than running eMule , just thought maybe a zalman-type passive NB cooler would be better than a stock one without a fan..

    All that noise and expense for only a maximum of 3cfm? You'd get more than that with a wet fart aimed at the side of the case..

    Microcool northpole or the new swiftech northbridge coolers are the only ones worth considering if you want the best.
