  1. Hey,

    I was wondering if anyone could provide some options on cooling for this motherboard and processor. Space is very limited, so a more vertical heat sink would work better opposed to a flat broad one.


    Thanks

    Hey,

    Thanks for the recomendation. It fits perfectly. The heatsink takes up pretty much the entire area, and the power supply sucks air out of the side of it, and the exhaust fan sucks air out the back. CPU temps dropped 15C, and under load they barely go up. where as before I was reaching nearly 100C while playing Half-Life 2 for any length of time. Now they're barely 50! Are there any options out there for cooling GPUs?
