When overclocking a CPU with a high TDP, what is the best way to keep the motherboard cool?
Liquid cooler with a side fan?
Top flow air cooler? Be quiet! appears to be releasing some pretty neat ones from CES 2015.
Or should I just use a conventional one and not worry about it? The chip is likely only going to be an 8350, so it's not like it'll be a 9590. I read a review of the 5960x where overclocking caused the MoBo to heat up too much and am now worried, though I don't think most people analyze it this much and just use a normal cooler.
