Me? I went with a heatsink and a fan Superglued on top of it, seems to get the job done.

Aircooling is sufficient for the Northbridge as it doesn't produce too much heat for a small active heatsink(I use a 486 CPU heatsink on mine at 200 FSB and it causes me no trouble). It may be more effort than needed to install a water block, pipes, etc for the Northbridge. Can't hurt if you don't mind the extra work and your watercooling system has the extra capacity for a few more watts of heat.
