    I have a Asus P5K Deluxe with a Intel 4300 being cooled by a Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme and a Panaflow 120mm 114 cfm fan. The processor is 33 idle and 44 under load. My problem is that the chipset which is a whooping 45C idle and 60 under load. Any cool suggestion that will install neatly and not void my mobo warranty?

    I'm using one of these: http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=75060

    You can disconnect the fan from the metal slot piece to reverse the direction - I oriented it so that the cool air blows down onto the chipset. It lowered my temps quite a bit, but I'm still planning to buy the optional chipset cooler.

    What would be a good overclocked chipset under load temp?
