Lol, sorry mate. Never heard of it myself. I think it is to do with the processor, the north bit of it?! The bit that like sticks out. (The bit that has your socket number on!!)

But again I am not toooo sure!! Any help guys?!

What are the specs for your pc?

I read that it controls the power of the cpu and processing and the south bridge controls the RAM.....im going to get cooling blocks for my graphics card, and cpu will that be enough to cool the system?
