This is an awesome heatsink for you're NF4 board! I've just acquired one last week and practically rebuilt my pc after installing it. My northbridge was sitting anywhere between 40-50c before and with this sink, EVEN with 2 7800GTs which have AC5s, the chip is between 37-45. That's with the side on and at 1.65v. It's got 2 LEDs one red and one blue. The way I mounted mine, the blue one shines between the two video cards. Giving it a nice compliment to the other blue LED fans I have.

It was a sinch to install, too. I just took of the old one cleaned the chip with some alcohol, applied some AS5 to the top and lined up a pin in the mounting hole. I had to give a bit of force to get the other one to line up, but it wasn't too bad. Then just pushed both pins through the board and plugged it in.

This is an excellent addition to any NF4 board. Mine was $12 even with shipping. Adding this in gave me a chance to rerun all the wires and give the case a cleaner feel.



Sorry for the quality, I'm borrowing a 3mp camera from a friend.
