    Ordered a Asus P5K Deluxe and from the lloks of it, the chipset is passively cooled only. I be dumping 8GB of ram on this mobo as well. Any suggestions for a fan to mount on the NB, SB and ram?

    I'll see if I can get some pics later - but I'm using an Antec card cooler to blow air across the northbridge / MOSFET heatsinks: http://techgage.com/article/antec_vcool_video_card_cooler/

    (My case has the motherboard mounted upside-down - I attached the extension to this cooler and pointed the fan so it blows "down" underneath my tuniq HSF and across the chipset heatsinks).

    It lowered my idle temps ~5C and load ~8C when it's on high. (slightly less on medium - and it's pretty quiet on medium and low)

    $10 at Staples or $20 at Fry's. (I picked it up at Staples ;))
