I have a mainboard A8N-SLI DELUXE. The chipset cooler uses a fan, but the quality of this component is really poor, and the fan become damaged very fast.
Now the fan is working in irregular way, sometimes it stops suddenly and chipset temperature goes really high rapidly.
It seems that there are no spare parts available to change the fan, so I thought to use a passive cooler to remove the fan completely.
Do you think that a passive cooler could be an adequate alternative to the original cooler? Does someone have experience in this?
Thanks for any suggestion
