ASUS A7V Socket A KT133 - FrostyTech.com ASUS A7V Socket A KT133

"As mentioned earlier, the A7V uses a riser card for the voltage regulation components which are normally mounted right on the board around the socket or along the slot. Whether it was done to maintain trace lengths, I don't know, but I do know you could park a seriously large socket cooler in that area if one with such sheer mass was available. Also previously noted are the four holes adjacent to the socket. From what I've heard, they are part of the Socket A motherboard spec from AMD, so I'm guessing you'll find them on other Socket A boards as well. What I'm getting to here is if you pair those holes up with the space available, you could probably put a huge heatsink on it without too much trouble. It's a known fact that AMD's Socket A chips get extremely hot, so these "features" may be put to use soon. I'm just imagining what kind of cooling power we'll need for a 1.5GHz Athlon, especially if we still have the option to overclock at that point."
