ZALMAN ZM-NB32 northbridge cooler question

Does anyone use the Zalman ZM-NB32 passive northbridge cooler on their board??? Was just wondering how well it performs compared to an active northbridge cooler???

I only found one review on the Net. I wana get a second opinion if possible.

Was plannin to change the stock cooler master northbridge cooler in my 8KHA+ mobo Need the extra cooling performance for overclocking.

Anyone have suggestions or recommendations???

I have one, it wont fit with the pegs that the regular HS uses, so it needs dots of superglue in the corners, i still cang breach 170FSB as the mouse goes ga-ga on me. I think it probably would help tho

if its got the holes around it, you can screw a socket 7 cooler on it from the back, I jsut use little sheet metal screws in the aluminum and it works sweet w/ no glue!

Random Nonsense,

What bios were you using when u hit 170FSB???

And also, what hard drive do you recommend when fooling around with high FSBs??? I corrupted my Western Digital recently when I was trying to boot in 160FSB

Thanks

cant remember what bios i was running at the time. sorry, and as to HDD's i wouldnt know, ive only overclocked with an IBM drive, i hope it will last me, since IBM have a bad reputation for reliability.
