power stuff around the socket is better than other matx boards, but youll need some serious airflow around them
As for cooling:

  • I am in the process of building some custom heatsinks for all of the MOSFETs as well as all VRMs on the board to keep it happy for a long time to come and let me overclock it as far as it will let me. A lot of the sinks I will be using were left over from the G4 Mac Mod build in my sig, as I replaced the board that was to use them.
  • The Northbridge is getting a monster little 25CFM Delta 40mm fan, so no foreseeable cooling issues there.
  • And I will be building a special case to keep everything very cool and happy. (read that last sentence as maximum airflow and a total disregard for noise output)
And I have a few ideas for keeping the GTX260's cooler and happier too:
