Jing Ting Chipforce JTS-0006 Chipset Cooler
June 26, 2006

Installation:

Installation is very simple, but slightly time consuming, since you will need to have access to the back side of your motherboard. Everything is included for a complete installation, even the instructions are included this time! Many of us are aware of the common issue with nVidia nForce motherboards where the chipset is located between or under a PCI Express video card. Here you can see both of my nForce motherboards suffer from this issue. The first is the new DFI NF4-DR UT Expert, the second is the older Gigabyte K8NXP-SLI motherboard. As you can see both boards include a low profile heatsink and fan that is located right below the first PCI Express video card.

Removing the motherboard is probably the aspect of the installation I hated the most, and takes up most of the installation time. Once you have removed the motherboard, and the original heatsink, you simply need to slide two long bolts though the holes in the motherboard and secure them using some small nuts. I would recommend only going finger tight. Here you can see the order that the accessories are installed to attach this to the cooler, with the motherboard being between the two red washers.

Currently I am only using one video card on my DFI Expert motherboard so I decided to do the install on this board. Once it is all installed, you can see that I had to sacrifice one of my USB headers to get the cooler to fit. With the number of USB ports on the DFI Expert, this is not an issue for me. Thankfully I didn't need to lose a SATA connection, however it was a close fit. Due to the length of the 7900GT PCI-E video card, I could not change the direction of the cooler and if I was running a SLI configuration this cooler would not fit at all.
