Ars Technica heeft een artikeltje in elkaar gedraaid waarin ze uitleggen hoe je de koeling van je BX chipset kunt verbeteren. Dit schijnt vooral nuttig te kunnen zijn in SMP configuraties op hoge busspeeds:
I can happily say this particular system has been considerably more stable since I slapped some custom cooling on the BX chipset. In the 7 days since I performed this procedure, I have been able to run this machine at 550MHz (5.5 x 100) with no problems except for one day that I left the air conditioner off and it was over 80°F in my computer room. Even then it ran at 522MHz without any problems at all, even while playing Q3A extensively. Of all of the BP6 machines in the Ars Labs, this one was the most finicky, but now it was on par with the others, as far as I was concerned.
