    the orb is a good thing but what you mean by replace. if it breaks? or to remove from the mobo. if you want to put a orb on you might need to take the whole mobo out because the pins that hold the old heat sink onto the mobo need to get pushed from the back of the mobo to be removed.

    They've got some good chipset coolers. I heard that you can even replace it with a big heatsink. apparently teh northbridge doesnt get too hot.
    Mine is noisy as hell. Is that why you're replacing it?
