Default Tip: cool your mosfets

A couple days ago I found these two puppies in my mailbox:


A DD GeForce & northbridge waterblock.

Now every component in my rig (except the PSU) is cooled by HO. Cool & quiet, but other components like my mosfets (those 6 little black cubes near the cpu) get really hot (+60C) due to the lack of airflow. I thought this shouldn't be a prob because the low-tech nature of it (it controls the voltage of your cpu if i'm not mistaken), but my system kept crashing after a few hours use.

So, i've put little heatsinks on them and placed a low performance fan near it, and now it's rock stable, even when pushed to the max.

This pr0lly void your warranty though... does anyone know how to remove traces of AS adhesive in case this mobo ever dies on me?

the cooler the better
typically a temp of 25C gives best results, based on an average of datasheets

no idea what the dutch term for mosfet is...


@TA: I would never have bought the northbridgecooler if I had to pay full price (HO cooling a kt266a chipset is overkill), but I had the chance to buy the DD GF2/3 & nortbridge WB second hand for 60 shipping included, so i did.

Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor... or mosfet. there are other transistors called JFETs as well. These electronic components are used for regulation, amplification, and even switching.
