8RDA+ @ 200FSB: Southbridge Cooling Necessary?

When running 200mhz FSB synch, is the southbridge overclocked at all? Is extra cooling required? I put a passive sink on my (very small one) and it gets somewhat warm...

Thanks,
C

Well if you MUST hve an answer to this Q , then the answer is........ on the 2 boards I have had the answer is NO as far as MUST I have a hs on the sb to run 200 fsb.......... both have done so without incident......... neither of mine have run hot. The first 1 I had I did put 1 on there ( only because it was available, and was doing mods at the time), I haven't put 1 on this one YET.... as it may be sold to my sister...... and she'll NEVER need it.

In other words SOMEWHAT warm is fine.......... a few folks have said it was HOT....... that to me is not fine.
