Re: Passive cooling nforce3 chipset?
I don't see why not. Some of Gigabyte's nf3 mobos use smaller heatsinks
for passive cooling. My own mobo (a k8ns-ultra 939) has a rather loud
fan I'd like to switch to a passive cooling solution as the fan is much
louder than my Zalman CN7700al-cu fan! The only thing is Zalmans
passive northbridge cooler won't work as well for me because of the
northbridge being right in line with the first two PCI slots, one of
which my PCI Radeon 7500 AIW card is in. I'm going to go with a
homefabbed heatpipe/spreader for my northbridge instead. After I do,
this thing will be as quiet as a G5 Mac.
