    Asus :P5W-DH Mosfet Heatsink Removal!!!

    Another quick question if I may add, I am planning to replace the Northbridge cooler on my motherboard Asus P5W-DH with the (Zalman ZM-NWB1) NB Block, however this means that the heatsink on the Mosfet will have to be removed does anyone have any ideas I was thinking about snipping the copper heatpipe and crimping the ends then placing the optional fan for passive cooling cases on top of the left heatsink.

    I would really appreciate if it anyone had any ideas!
