you'd usually see a heatsink/fan combo on top of the motherboard's northbridge (chipset) to keep it cool.

there are some boards that come with chipset fans and some that doesn't have any, you can install one with and exact size to bolt on screws with the gaps in the heatsink. Otherwords, if you dont have it, make a mod for yourself.

increase the voltage of the fan and it'll spin faster
