This Zalman Northbridge chipset cooler is completely passive and still quite capable of cooling the latest Northbridge technology.

Cheap, looks good, and warms up fast so it''s definately sinking the heat. Replaces the stock ASUS passive heatsink which was attached with, ick, thermal pads. I used Arctic silver paste for my install. Yes the install is a bit tough because the screws are VERY small, but once done it fits well. Mating surface is practically mirror honed and un-anodized. The only thing which could improve this is if they give you 4 attachment hooks instead of 2 arranged diagonally. This cooler works with mother boards that have either holes or hooks/loops. With this my motherboard temp went from 95 F to 89 F.

This thing is cheap, looks great, and cools amazingly well considering the previous. No, it can''t hold a candle to liquid cooling, but at this price, who can argue? Installation can be a little tricky, as the supplied screws are impossibly small. Otherwise, a great product and highly recommended!
