Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if the above board has holes,
thro the board, around the cpu socket and the northbridge chips.

I want to fit a Thermalright SLK h\sink and a Zalman N\Bridge passive cooler.

Need to know before I buy the board

Thanks in advance,

Regards Bob

Difficult to tell but have a look at click here# and click on enlarge view. Northbridge seems to have a fan fitted already.

Ignore me. It looks like a different board.

Hi Big Elf,

Thanks for response

Sorry for delay replying had to go out last night.

Had a look at your link looks like the right one
you can just about read the number on it, although I found on the site there's a v2.0 wonder what the difference is? I take it the white spots are plastic push pins ?

I'm not sure. Also I've read that fans on the northbridge are often glued on rather than bolted.

Brain not in gear. I meant that heatsinks are often glued on.
