    Fair enough ... I'd assumed the fan must be there for a purpose (the board might run the part beyond Intel's rated 7.8W spec, etc) ... but it seems passive cooling is a workable option, unless that fan/heatsink is necessary because it's also cooling other parts covered by that fixture.

    no idea what else it covers couldn't find a pic where it was unmounted

    on the other hand the z77 chipset can't be that different from the x79 no? I found this pic of the P8Z77-M :

    small PCH heatsink (and no fins)

    the one on the 'pro' version has a few more fins but still smaller than my blue zalman :

    so if z77 doesn't heat up too much then maybe the x79 doesnt either


    1) are there prime95 equivalents for the PCH? (a way to "stress test" the chipset. north or south bridge whatever it's called. like the one in that pic of the x79 sabertooth)

    2) is there a thermal throttle or thermal shutdown protection for the PCH like there is for the CPU?
    for instance in Bios there is a "thermal monitor" option for the CPU which can be disabled - that's suicide I know - but no "thermal" option for the PCH. does that mean there's no built-in safety shutdown for PCH overheating?!?
