I'm an owner of a Striker II formula and I've got in my mind to replace
the stock NB and SB dissipators with the thermalright ones
the only problem is... that the don't cover the SB200 chip! what should
I do?? shall I leave it there at the open air? I don't think it's a
wise decision though... also I don't want to "break" the stock cooler
of the mobo in case one day I have to RMA it.
any suggestion? thx to every one!
Not sure I understand. Do you mean that thermalright doesn't have a cooler for the SB? If so try another brand. Enzotech makes the only active SB cooler I could find. The rest are passive. Looking at the only active cooler it doesn't look any better than a stock fan. The passive ones are crap IMO. So if you board has an active cooler (IE with a fan) I would keep that. If it has a passive, heatsink only cooler, I would buy the Enzotech cooler. Provide it will work with your board. It should as it is intended as a universal replacement. I hope this helps.
EDIT: You can find the Enzotech cooler here: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/6717/vid-102/Enzotech_SLF-1_Forged_Copper_Northbridge_Southbridge_Low-Profile_Heatsink.html?tl=g40c16s501
I used to carry a hammer in my computer tool kit. Just for fixing the packard Bells though.......
