    Anyone know how to replace the noisy northbridge cooling fan on the
    nforce4 chipset of ECS Nforce4-a939? I just bought a zalman ZM-NB47J
    heatsink, only to find out that there are no holes around the chipset.
    There are only the special handles, where the northbridge fan grabs on.
    I couldn't find any heatsink that could adapt on these handles.

  2. Does the fan attach to those handles with screws?

    Real hardware stores sell square plastic anchors for screws that spread
    out when a screw is inserted into them, just as metal anchors for
    concrete do, and they should be able to grip the fins of the heatsink
    tightly enough to hold the fan in place. Even chunks of rubber may
    work here because they'll spread out when screwed.

    hi, I'm using a Zalman heatsink too - i just used the wire that came with the standard heatsink. Its slighty off center by 1 or 2mm but works fine and gives the graphics card more space.
