Added mods to my mods

Guys and Gals, I just upgraded my cooling mods with great success. I went from a Zalman/PCToys 6000 (50C 100% load) to a SLK900U with the Zalman 92mm fan (41 C 100% load)=quiet AND cool.
I added heatsinks to the small chip and the tiny chip at the end of the row of mosfets . I removed the Vantek Iceberq and made my own Northbridge cooler out of an old Pentium heatsink and a modded fan (hacksawed the corner off ofthe fan for fit). The heatsink took a couple of hours because I did it with hacksaw, files and vicegrips and of course a bench vise, it would have been easier and about 15 minutes at work on a milling machine.
pic #1 two nforce2 stockers and two candidates
pic #2 matching up for size.
#3 added chip cooling.
#4 modified P1 heatsink.
#5 modded fan
#6 tight fit
results= was 200FSB, now 210FSB

Cool, I remember when it wasn't necessary to even cool the north bridge - or at least not actively.

Congrats on a mod well done!
