    DP45SG nothbridge heatsink


      Ok, i'm trying to get EXTREME cooling on my board... But i have NO IDEA what can be a GOOD heatsink for my northbridge...

      The price doesn't matter...

          I have a similar question.  I have a DQ965CO motherboard and I notice that the Intel Hardware Monitor shows the I/O Controller Hub (ICH8 southbridge) temperature as being quite high (90C).  So I'd like to provide better cooling to that chip.  Any suggestions as to how to best go about it?

              In my case this is the normal (i.e. non-overclocked) temperature.  It's possible that the sensor is faulty, but the chip does feel quite hot to the touch.  (I can't touch it for more than a second without risking a burn.)  Sadly, there doesn't seem to be any provision for mounting a heatsink and/or fan onto the chip unless you want to glue it on.  But I have no experience doing that.  What would work best?  Elmer's Glue?  ;-)
