A look at aftermarket Chipset cooling.

Running dual video cards, and having weird reboots and freezes? Can you prime95 all day, but not play a game? Might be your chipset overheating!

Cadaveca takes us through the pros and cons of a number of aftermarket cooling solutions for chipsets, an area often dismissed without thought.

Been waiting for this. Great job Dave! I'm glad i chose the HR-05-SLI after all! I do have to say that the cooler i got had a mirrored mounting surface.
