Default Putting a HS on the South Bridge - worth it?

Hi all

I have a spare Zalman NB HS and some thermal adhesive, is there any point in
mounting this on the SB of a GA-7N400 Pro or does the SB not require cooling
(well Gigabyte etc. obviously don't feel the need)?

TIA

Bill L

I can't hurt to do it, i personally put a Vantec heatsink on the Southbridge
with some Artic Silver III.

How heavy is that heatsink?, maybe a thermal pad might secure it better as
there are no clips to hold the heatsink in place.

It's not gonna hurt that for sure.
