I'm sure if you had to cut them you could just solder them closed again.

I suggest you read this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_pipe

^ interesting read, I'v never looked heatpipes before.

Basically heat pipes are filled with a coolant. Then as the coolant is heated up it turns to a gas and goes to the top of the heat pipe, where it cools then falls back to the bottom to be heated again.

heat pipes are vacuum sealed, but since you'll be cutting them at room temp the coolant will be a liquid and you can pour it out and keep it till you need to put it back in. you could even seal them back up after you've shortened them. The only problem is that it would have air in it instead of a vacuum.

What I would do is stress test with your stock cpu, figure out the load temp. cut open the heatpipe on it(because you're buying a new one to use) solder it closed in order to let it fill with air. then stress test and see what kind of a temp difference there is.

Then from the temp differences you can decide whether you would want get a 212 and cut the heatpipes or just get a katana.

Dont worry, it was a joke You could actually cut them a little bit if you knew the exact measurements...

I'll propably end up making a small bump on the side plate, I dont really care what it looks like as the side is against a wall pretty much.

Worried about the size of your pipe DMP?

also he really did cut them they wouldn't fit in his case. Just lapped.
