    The newer chipsets run so hot they have to have active cooling or elaberate heatpipes. Companies like Arctic Cooling and Zalman make fans for almost any application that are very quiet.

    I was under the impression that the newer technology runs cooler?

    And yes, Zalman will provide you with a great cooling solution.

    The newer processors are alot cooler but chipsets and video card cores have gotten hotter, especially chipsets.
