It's June, and time to find out if your new motherboard likes heat and humidity. MyWorldhardware takes a good look at a very functional chipset cooler from Thermaltake. There are a few other things to get the air moving inside your case, and a fun little device that keeps your morning brain lubrication warm.
"Mainboard chipsets are often forgotten when it comes to cooling. As overclockers are pushing the limits of their system, northbridge cooling is getting more attention these days... There are 3 types of methods to mount the Extreme Spirit. The first method uses push pin clips to secure it to the motherboard. The second method uses spring clips and finally we have SEKISUI tape for motherboards without mounting holes around the Northbridge chip... Also included is an independent fan controller with 3 fixed steps, namely low, medium and high setting."
