does your motherboard have to support it? and also does it help enough to justify the crazy cost of buying it from thermalright?

thermalright is the epitome of overkill air cooling... most motherboard's mosfet are adequately cooled and anyone who's having doubts can use a simple ghetto mod like this...

However, if you're willing to actually spend cash on aftermarket mosfet cooling, you might as well not skimp and snag something by thermalright...

Also, yes, your motherboard generally does have to support the mosfet cooler if you plan on using the scews or pushpins they supply... of course one can always simply ignore the suggested mounting methods and use a thermal glue to permanently attach them
