With the current layout of motherboards based on the nVidia nForce4 chipset, the physical chip is usually located between, or just below, the PCI Express slots. Jing Ting has designed a new chipset cooler that takes this into account, and has implemented a heat pipe into their design which takes the bulk of the cooler's body away from the default location. - The Review

Really nice Cooler but it seems it's going to be more like US$40 as here at performance-pcs.. $10 more than an AC Freezer 64 Pro Yikes

Welcome FireTech! Thanks for the link!

We didn't find it ourselves, and now I feel bad for talking Hellfire down from his original assessment where he was right on the money (so to speak)... He said last week:

Quote:
I would assume a retail price of $35 - $50 would be reasonable.


And I said no way, not that high.

I lose! Laughing

(does seem high for a chipset cooler, though).

Thanks for the reply Big Bruin. Great Review Smile
I'm not sure about calling $30-50 'reasonable' but I can appreciate the amount of work put in and production costs etc but it is the most expensive aftermarket chipset cooler I've seen (apart from the mCubed Borg nF4 at equivelant to US$70!!!).
It really looks like what I'm after for my Foxconn but I just can't justify paying the same for a chipset cooler as I did for my CPU cooler (Scythe Ninja). I'd rather wait and buy a new fully passive MB Wink
Not forgetting that no-one actually distributes them here in Oz! I can only assume that the US shop did a 'personal import' of a batch (which I considered too) as there is no official distributor there either AFAIK...

I hadn't seen that Borg before today... very similar (and pricy). But, there are some others in the $30 range (Swiftech models) and even that big old Cooler Master Blue Ice isn't cheap.

As most components come down in price (DDR, CPUs, Drives, etc) coolers seem to be going up! CPU, GPU, Chipset... they are all climbing and some are definitely to the point of being ridiulous!

Yea, don't think it'll fit between the 7900's on the DFI Expert. If it did, it woudl be VERy tight, and would lose a few SATA connections...

I see alot of posts on other forums with people looking for these still... Just thought I'd share that SideWinder has them for $39:

Cheers Big Bruin. I'd really like to see a version of the Thermalright HR-05 with the same heatpipe orientation as the Jing Ting. that would be a killer cooler Cool
