Default whats a good and small North bridge cooler fan

hi, i am in search of a good and small north bridge cooler for my p5q pro, i am currently using the TRUE 120 HSF and it kinda blocks the north bridge and it is require to have 1.48v on NB to keep a stable overclock for my e2180. Anyone know a some good NB coolers for under $30?

thanks for reading

Unfortunately that's not going to help the OP as he's already stated that his NB is in conflict with this TRUE.

If you're concerned about your northbridge temps, what about extra cooling without changing the stock heatsink??? NCIX.com - Buy Antec Spot Cool Adjustable System Cooler Blue LED 3 Speed 2000-3000RPM 23-33DBA 15-22CFM - SPOT COOL In Canada.

I've had good success with one of these Vantec coolers. They fit underneath PCI-express video cards when your video card is overtop of your NB. They are made of copper (there is also an aluminum version). My NF4 NB on my media center pc at full load is only 38c. The only downside is they don't have a RPM sensor:

IMO I don't think that's enough for a P45 chipset.

I think either one of these would do nicely:

What about this: Cooler Master Blue ICE Chipset Cooler with LED Fan SLC-S41-U1 in Canada at TigerDirect.ca


Inexpensive and nice small size. Buddy uses it and he says it dropped temp by 6c

Those are actually pretty good. I haven't had to use one since my P5N SLI board, but it cooled that rather toasty nvidia chipset down quite well. And they were dirt cheap too.

thanks guys, i would of loved to use one of those mosfet coolers from thermalright and they probably work great , but there were too much blood spill after installation of the true 120 in my sonota case i never knew pulling the mobo from a mid size case could be so much trouble

now i regret not getting a bigger case and a modular PSU

will get the muti purpose antec spot cool for now

thanks again for reading !

I've used them in the past and usually helps drop temps 2 or 3. They are handy.

I don't mean to hijack this thread but I was thinking of using these to cool my north/south bridge.

NCIX.com - Buy Enzotech SLF-1 Pure Copper Low Profile Heatsink 12MM High - SLF-1 In Canada.

Any opinions?
