Default Have A7A266; any point installing Zalman north bridge heat sink

If you dont overclock, and you dont have a fan on your northbridge then no,
there is no point

I have a computer consisting of an
Athlon XP 1800+ on an Asus A7A266
motherboard. Recently, I got a Hush
Kit from QuietPC to quieten my machine.
One component is a Zalman Silent
Motherboard Heatsink ZM-NB32J (seen here
at http://www.quietpc.com/uk/vgamb.php).

Since the A7A266 has a silent heatsink
on the north bridge anyway, there's
no point in installing this for sound
reasons. Is there any other point?
(I've no desire to overclock.) I can't
see any pros to installing the new heatsink,
whereas there is one con: I may screw
up the installation somehow, and fry
my motherboard.

Cheers,

P.
