  1. Okay so Should I go for a fan or like a type of heatsink for the chipset on my motherboard.
    I have a ASUS A8N-E Motherboard and I was thinking of getting something like this.
    Well, anyone of these. Could any of these work? Any ideas?

    Any Ideas? I've never replaced a fan or heat sink on a motherboard before.

    So you are talking about the Northbridge chip on the motherboard? Did the chip have a heatsink on it originally? Some motherboards don't need Northbridge heatsinks. I like the first... Silenx

    Yes, it has a small heatsink and fan on it, I want to replace it because no matter how many times I clean my case, I usually have to kick start my fan... which can be extremely annoying because one of these times that fan is just not going to work...

    So I think I may need to go ahead and replace it.
