North side bus cooling? (North bridge cooling)


Hey guys, I recently upgraded my motherboard to the MSI 760GM-E51 FX which comes stock with two switches to over-clock my motherboard's front side bus. Also I have the AMD Zembezi "Bulldozer" 8 core desktop CPU 8120 3.1 GHZ unlocked.

I found a good cpu liquid radiator cooling system, however it's difficult to find a good north side bus cooling system like I need.

If anyone has some suggestions, please let me know. Any help or advice is appreciated!

Side note: I know OC is not recommended however I'm going for it if I can keep my temperatures at safe level.
