Does anyone have the XFX 680i SLI motherboard? It seems the majority are have having problems with their motherboards dueto the North/Southbridge heatsinks. So I'd like to replace the heatsinks with something else.

I'm wondering what heatsink + fan (if there is room for a fan) someone would recommend for the XFX 680i SLI that has two graphics cards.

I've been looking at the Cooler Master Blue Ice Pro Northbridge Chipset Cooler RR-NCW-L4E1-GP and the Thermalright HR-05-SLI


Edit: Scratch the Thermalright HR-05-SLI :( Contacted Thermalright and they said it wouldn't fit my system with dual video cards. Looks like my options are getting short :(

I bought one of these from evga for their 680i southbridge- only costs about 12 bucks and it works fine- not sure if it will work on the XFX- it's got anice low profile though

EDIT- brain fart!- I put this sucker on the southbridge- northbridge is watercooled LOL

I'll be honest with you. I bought an XFX 680i mobo and I want to shoot myself in the head. I bought it when it was on at TD for 100$ regular 189$ while it is a good price I have a sneaking feeling that they only brought the price down to get rid of stock. So now I'm left with a shit motherboard lol. I would recommend scrapping it all together and grab the Gigabyte

the board I got was DOA so I sent it in to XFX. Two boards later they still don't work and customer service is balls at XFX. So needless to say I'll be staying away from their mobo's for the next thousand years.

I find it odd that Thermalright says that the Thermalright HR-05-SLI would not fit my system with dual cards. It looks like there is enough room for two. *shrugs*
