fans on NB

what up guys?

so the only component in my rig tht gets hot is the NB. and that's because my massive GPU is blocking any moving air to it. so how do u attach a fan to the NB? do u guys have pics? I have a nice fan to use, but yea still.

I've used this Antec spot fan and like it for both Ram and Mobo cooling.

I add chipset coolers to my boards, good ones run under $20. Small, quiet and they keep the nb under 50C. You may need a very low profile cooler to clear the video card. Enzotech makes a very low profile unit as does Titan. If you the room this Titan is a nice one.

i just used a flat blade to pry the heatsink appart a tad, and just found a screw that fit between and through the fan holes.
