Do you think this will work form this 680I board? Also take yours off and replace the thermal paste for now that will help a lot especially if that fan is week or completely shot! You pay shipping ill send you the whole board! its a buggy POS!! works but barely!

Thanks for that JRockZ, that won't work, the chipset is more of a triangle shape and the cooling fins are obstructing the GPU slot:



I think i'm going to get some zipties and a 60mm fan, it seems to be able to do the same thing as the stock fan, no heatsink means that it's just air blowing through the fins.

I bet you my whole heatsink and fan set up will fit right in there!! the holes in the board are probably the same! but that's cool thought I could help

What's surprising about the whole situation is that someone else was suckered into nvidia chipsets lol, we are chumps for it, my Mobo doesn't even support basic S.M.A.R.T. functionality, and never will

I want an nForce 780i motherboard so badly but my case is just m-ATX so i am stuck with a ASUS P5KPL-AM or Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L

Just to add insult to injury, I've just had an error i've never seen before,

Well at least the two issues aren't related. It's paramount to have a back up strategy with all important data. The other is just a cooling issue that should be an easy hack to get you by till you've saved the the next build.

Surprisingly, the fan isn't making any noise now, maybe it just needed wearing in again, I took it apart and fully cleaned it, since then it's been rather quiet, I'm kind of thinking my cleaning regime isn't as thorough as I thought it was, as far as the disk errors go, I've backed up all my important data, but if this drive goes, I'm screwed as I don't have another bootable drive to use, maybe one of the cables is loose, I'm going to check and double check and replace the sata cable.

You could also buy a new drive of the same size or larger and image the old to the new one.

I'll probably do a fresh install on an SSD or an SSHD, I've replaced the cables and it seems to be running fine.
