Hey, bringing up an old post, but I wonder, how well does that Southbridge cooler work? I am watercooling my Northbridge, so leaves the southbridge bare. I have a spare HR-05 SLI kicking about, but with a second GTX, it blocks my lonely PCI slot, meaning no Soundcard for me. I have just "Glued"(arctic silver thermal adhesive) a heatsink from an old Mobo I had lying around, which is just slightly smaller than, for comparisons sake, an Intel 965 stock northbridge heatsink. Think this will perform passive? I think it should do the trick. It is about 1.5"x1.5"x1.5" in size, about 50 or so "fins". Cooling comes from the TJ-09 middle intake fan.
