If the system is running ok, it is quite normal for the chipset block to get hot... I got hold of a Zalaman bracket and put a fan over one of mine to cool it (the actual fan for it went missing), it still ran hot, but never glitched...

What is your motherboard and what is your case will give an idea of cooling setup... Water cooling is only really for the enthusiast and overclocker - it can cause more headaches than it is there to solve..

The MOSFETs behind the CPU are generally cooled by the CPU fan, but some do have their own heat sinks.

This can give you an idea for a cheaper non liquid cooling...

Hot chip

I don't like selling small case/laptop PCs for precisely the reason -- no space for cooling. HEAT KILLS.

good luck.
