about that high is possible.. I think a fan is nescessary. But many people have reported this problem with the stock fan! :(

And with my current GPU's it's impossible to fit almost anything in there, if only I'd gone GT instead of Ultra.

Depends on the super glue. A buddy of mine had to go to the hospital a couple years back after he superglued his thumb and index finger together. His stupidity was quite impressive, as was the strength of the glue.

LMAO .... I run at 1024x768 ... Hmmm If you need a Hsf that is that tiny You could and try to Rip apart your existing Fan and fix it ( repair it , i do have a tutorial on how to do so ) or you can either cut the one a suggested down a tad to make it fit Shorten it . From the demensions of the link It is only 3.2 cm high so bout

The chipset cooler is a *known* problem for Asus on the A8N and the A8V.

Contact Asus and have your serial number ready. Let them know you have a problem chipset fan and that you need a replacement chipset fan shipped to you.

They will ship you a different model that does not experience this issue, at no charge to you.

The different model has the same height as the current chipset, but it sits on the chipset at about 45 degree cant to the side. Seems a bit larger on the diameter too. The fan spins more slowly.

But, to assure you, Asus is fully aware of the problem, and once you bring it up to their TS dept that you can perform the work on the chipset HSF unit, they will ship it to you.

I had to replace mine, that is why I know, and I talked to an Asus rep @ a Tech show I was at a few months back, and he confirmed it as a known issue. .

;)

Good luck!

The A8V had a passive chipset cooler. No fans.
