Recommendations for cooling the 8rda+

I've checked out the thermal images of the 8rda+ which i came across in a thread somewhere in this forum does anyone feel like sharing their recommendations for active & passive cooling solution's for the 8rda+ based on price/performance gains and availabilty, as this is the most permanent part of modding this board i want to get some good cooling on so i can get alot out of it and so im not a little pissed later because of dodgy cooling.

Check out the 8RDAFAQ.com, they have a section on there under 'mods' with extra cooling on the mosfets etc.

I'm using an Iceberq cooler on the NB and I transferred the stock cooler to the SB. You do have to do some modification to the stock cooler fins to get it to fit and not hit some small components.

Right now I'm at 208 FSB with a VDD of 1.56 so I guess the mod was somewhat successful. I feel better knowing that the NB isn't getting so hot. The thermal pad that comes with the board is not the best solution. I'll stick with AS III.

The nice thing about the Iceberq is that it fits the holes perfectly so you don't have to epoxy it.
