Has anyone run this board completely passive? Its a shame for such a frugal board on power that its heatsinks aren't up to much.

Yeah, that little chipset heatsink gets very, very hot. I had a Xigmatek Porter N881 laying around that I could use, dropped the temp by something like 30-40C.. But mounting the Xigmatek cooler was a bitch, not sure if it's the best cooler for the job. It fits though, but it's very close.

All passive is very difficult, but with large heatsinks a quiet low RPM 120mm fan is enough to cool a lot of stuff.

Thanks. Looks like I will look elsewhere then. I am looking to run something in the H3 Sodd.
