Looking for Compatible Northbridge Heatsink for Intel DX58SO Motherboard

Hello all!

 

I'm looking for a Northbridge X58 Chipset heatsink that's compatible with my Intel DX58SO motherboard. I will be overclocking so something with stock or better heat dissipation is desired. I no longer have the stock heatsink for the northbridge (don't ask how I lost it).

 

I've found a couple different heatsinks but I don't know if they're compatible with the DX58SO. The mounting holes on this board seem farther apart than what I see on other boards. I tried taking some measurements of the four mounting holes and this is what I got:

 

Horizontal Holes: 66.675mm apart

 

Vertical Holes: 47.625mm apart

 

Diagonal Holes: 80.9625mm apart

 

 

Here are two of the heatsink/fans combos I was considering:

-Enzotech Cnb-r1 and 40mmx40mm fan

I'm struggling to find a new chipset heatsink for this motherboard. Can anyone help me figure out if the above heatsinks will be compatible with the Intel DX58SO Northbridge? And if none of the above are compatible, do you know of any that are?
