Need cooler recommendations for IC7-G Northbridge chip

    The Abit fan cooler for the northbridge chip has died.

    Abit seems to have a very obstructive warranty policy, making this
    difficult to exchange. Because of this, I won't be buying Abit again.

    Anyway, I have a thermaltake heatsink on the CPU and it overhangs the
    Northbridge chip cooler a bit.

    I'm looking for recommendations for a replacement cooler. I don't much
    care if it's got a fan or is passive, but I need to be compatible with
    the Thermaltake (SLK800 I think?) cooler I've got on the CPU. I'd
    rather not glue a metal block on top of the 82785 since it could void
    the ABIT warranty.

    Recommendations from other IC7-G users who have replaced this cooler
    would be appreciated.

    Really? I read here that someone complained to Abit about the noise of
    the older blue fan and they sent him the new improved design for free.
    How is that obstructive?Did you try asking them for a new NB HSF?

    Contact Abit (Email on their Website) and they should send you a
    replacement. I received mine, in the UK, within a few days. The replacement
    is an improvement over the original dud.
