^ Fixed that for you. ^

Yes, I regularly add fans to chipset heatsinks. But that's because most chipsets need one these days. Only chipsets I don't do it to is mostly older stuff, like SiS, VIA, and nForce 2 and earlier.

Also, the board above that I posted is not an Intel with Intel chipset. It is AMD socket FM2 with AMD A75 chipset. These chipsets run cool overall. But still... if a heatsink feels too hot, I add a fan. If not, I do let it be as is (but gain, that is rare anymore.)

I sure succeeded in fooling you there, then

Yes, that CPU cooler is from socket LGA775. And it's mounted on AMD FM2 motherboard. That's the ghetto part, really, and the point of that post.

I mounted one of my LGA775 heatsinks (a pretty big heatsink from a HP dx2200) using nuts and bolts on a MSI G41T-P26 I have with a Pentium D 925.

Photos coming soon!
