Name the chip (opposite the 8RDA+ Vdd chip)

Would anyone be so kind as to tell me the name of the chip opposite the Vdd chip (IOR 3037)? I can't quite make it out from the pic, thx.

Thx m8. I froze the mobo since it worked for my ati radeon8500 and artic silver epoxied mem heatsinks. I mullered it, after I got a new mobo taking off a worthless heatsink. I repaired my kr7a-133 and want to do the same for the 8RDA+. I will get a small head for my soldering iron and practice my l33t soldering skillz! Thx Reejoc.

Hi
The little chip next to the 3037 is the one that supplies the power to the northbridge.It gets quite hot especially if you do the vdd mod on the 3037.The 3037 just controls the F7313.Smiffy

I found a page with the 3037 but can't see a 315 chip. Can anyone confirm the name of the chip?

Edit: With you prompt I found the datasheet, thx. I see why I couldn't find a match - not searching for correct code. I have found the number of my own after I knifed it off the heatsink! The first three digits signify the year and week of manufacture and the middle the lot code, the end being the chip design code.

I have found/been told:
IOR228M-6M8C-F7313
IOR315M-587J-F7313
IOR244M-96S7 (the bottom numbers were obscured so they must also be F7313)

Just so you know I did search on www.farnell.co.uk for f7313 (package type so-8) and found a data sheet and will buy 1 for £2.50 free shipping.
Thx guys.

You have to buy £10 at least from farnell but with a 0.5mm soldering bit I repaired my board and I am using it as I speak, while my new one gets RMAed for 3 reasons:
bent CMOS and LED/switch pins (straightened by me)
Broken dimm latch (useable but not what you expect)
Corrupt cmos from using the manufacturers windows based flash program.

All things considered, RMAing it is my best option even if I do end up buying a spare chip just incase.

I would buy it here, but bios savior is not worth it since it is not even compatable between my two nforce2 boards:

CMOS settings sometimes change between BIOS versions, which is why most manufacturers recommend that you reset the CMOS settings after upgrading the BIOS. When there's been substantial changes, the BIOS may mark the CMOS as corrupt, simply to ensure that the old settings are overwritten by correct settings.

The windows based flash program decided to go all flaky and the operating system became unresponsive on and off for 3 seconds, so I reset (bad idea), and no amount of cmos resetting made any difference. It is the only corrupt bios I have seen but it is unmistakably so.

The award flash dialog comes up instead of the post screen and it says
"source file not found".
