there has been much talk about replacing the chipset fan on the DFI boards. People have used this successfully and the temps have lowered. Remember to use AS5 while putting the heatsink on.

EDIT: This one works too: http://www.jab-tech.com/vantec-icebe...r-pr-1529.html

if i were u i would try some liquid metal instead of AS5 because ur getting all copper heatsink a liquid metal would greatly increase the contact and cooling ability of ur heatsink.

LIQUID METAL CORRORDES ALUMINUM. I highly recommend you dont use this. Wanna see what happens if you mess up? http://frostytech.com/permalink.cfm?NewsID=46586
