I tried finding the EnzoTech heat sinks. Only NewEgg stocks em and they're on back order. Anywhere else I might be able to find em?

What about a bar heatsink? Would I be able to use some thermal tape and just stick one on there that might match the dimensions?

Shows in stock to me.

Keep in mind with the smaller Enzotech heatsinks you'll need 18 of them. That's a little pricey for my personal taste, copper is expensive.

I'd measure the mounting holes on your motherboard. (it has them according to the pics) You could probably find a Thermalright offering that would fit for half the cost. Go to the Thermalright website for the schematics/measurements.

Well, that's that!

It's the northbridge. Cracked the side of my case open and touched the VRMs. Warmish. Felt around the board for a hot spot not really finding anything until I brushed the heatsink on the northbridge and Yeow! So I think tomorrow I will reverse the airflow through my case to pull from the back and move through the front until I can buy a spotcool fan.

And now you know, and knowing is half the battle! Yo Joe!

Wow, that is really odd. But good to know. The VRM's are usually the volcanoes on motherboards.
While the NB's get hot, thats odd for a newer one like that to get so hot.

See if you can find at NCIX or Newegg a NB cooler solution.
Good to see you found the issue. I was actually thinking too that I would laugh all this time and searching I did for VRM heatsinks if it was indeed the NB.
