first heres a picture of the heatsink for my southbridge i made out of a old 486 hs, it was cut with a hack saw, lol i need a dremel bad :P
next, i noticed these chips, (voltage regulators i think???) got quite hot, so i slapped a few heatinks on them, also from a old pentium heatsink, also cut with a friggin hack saw, lol and a few minutes i noticed the small chip right above them gets very hot, so.. might slap a heatsink on them too
next thing for sure will be to raplace that crappy heatsink on the northbridge!!! lol im working on wattercooling this puppy soon anyway
I might try that see if I can get higher.
I have a 486 HS that I can just thermal paste down to the southbridge. I can cut up the heatsink off a mac processor that went dead on me.It's pretty big, and I've been hacking off it for awhile. It's what made the ramsinks for my 9500 infact.

Erm...putting a sink on the southbridge won't do anything for ya, lol. That said, putting a heatsink on the MOSFETs will help sometimes in aiding in stability at higher vcores and higher CPU frequencies. Putting a heatsink on a voltage regulator itself is kind of pointless though, even if it does get warm. Then you can't mod it. Then again, who needs to mod chips on an EPoX board Oh yeah, those early revision 8RDA boards don't have a high enough IO voltage
I would think the MOSFETs and northbridge would be the most critical to cool if you're doing this just for overclocking purposes..
