My System Specs

Default eVGA 750i SLi FTW cooling

Any aftermarket coolers for the motherboard? So far I have only seen water, but I'd like to stay with air cooling.

Just wondering if anyone has/knows of any other possibilities.

I already have a Thermalright HR-09 type 04 mosfet, which looks like it will fit perfectly, a lil copper SB jobbie which I'm not sure about the mobo's SB mounting holes....and a Thermalright HR-05 IFX for the NB...again unsure of the mounts. Still so many variables and there's still the NF200...which I hear is fine with a big ramsink.

Any and all help welcome

I've wanted to change mine too but the problem is the layout with the SB being directly underneath the top PCIE slot it dosn't give you any height to work with at all.

I have this for the SB...and it's a good fit.

NCIX.com - Buy Enzotech CNB-S1L Forged Copper Low Profile Northbridge Heatsink Square - CNB-S1L In Canada.

But all in all it's the NB temp that could be lowered quite a bit, allowing me to OC more with acceptable temps. The problem is with the SB, along with everything else...lolz. As the cooler for the whole mobo is one piece. Mosfet cooler is 100% compatible by Thermalrights' list, and the SB does fit nicely. It's the NB / NF200 chips that are the tricky part.
