Swiftech is a fine choice. For another low pressure drop, DangerDen also has a good product.

Sorry for intruding but I have a similar problem with a slight twist. I have a MSI Neo4 Platinum/SLI board, and I would like to use two video cards on it. My NB fan is loud, and I am willing to do anything to tame it without overheating. The problem is that if I install a second video card, it over-runs the NB, so any selection I make would have to be thin. If I stick a water block on it, the barbs get in the way, if I try something passive like a Zalman chipset cooler, it’s also too tall. Here (http://www.hardocp.com/image.html?image=MTEwNzMxNTk1OEc0eDNITDVkeFVfMV8yX 2wuanBn) is a picture of the motherboard.

Am I stuck with the stock cooler for my chipset?

Possibly the most restrictive as well...

You may be able to adapt an innovatek x-flow or a koolance for NB use.

We promote DIY solutions here. There's a fine article on the frontpage on how to make your own shroud, using fiberglass/resin.
