I have decided to delay using thermal adhesive to glue my Zalman nb heatsink to my 850E chipset by utilizing a heatsink off of a friend's DFI LanParty either i865 or i875 (he's an overclocker and wants better nb cooling).

I cleaned the sticky pink thermal stuff off of the heatsink and used some leftover Arctic Silver 3 Thermal Grease to mate the new heatsink and the chip. So far, my PC seems stable as I've been able to leave it on for a few hours installing windows, drivers, etc. After powering up my computer for about 20 minutes, the heatsink heats up significantly and becomes hot to touch...I mean, I can place my finger on it, but its definitely NOT mildly warm. ***I guess this is a good sign meaning that the AS3 is doing its job in transferring heat from the chip core to the heatsink?

Does this mean I should ditch the DFI NB heatsink+AS3 combo and just use the zalman nb32j+thermal adhesive?

BTW -- For owners of i850E, i865, or i875-based motherboards with passively-cooled chipsets, how does the northbridge heatsink feel (temperatue wise) during operation? Thanks for any input!

My i875 is Really Hot. I can probably manage a temperature reading if you're interested.

It's an Asus P4C800, preinstalled with a passive heatsink. "type"?

thanks for your info...when you say "really hot," are you able to touch the heatsink comfortably?
