Re: New North Bridge Heatsink
well damn, too late for that. But if i get a heatsink with a lower profile it might be enough room that that the end of the sound card fits over it.
But I'll have to compare the effectiveness of the two heatsinks to each-other first, don't want to melt right through a $200 dollar card and a $100 dollar board
my sound card is an Asus Xonar Essence STX
look at the photos, compare them to the mainboard photos.
I have no idea how PCIe slots work, but if you think sticking it in another slot might work, I am willing to try it before my warranties run out
thanks for your help, i'l give you more information if you need it
