Hmm... I don't think removing them can cause warranty issues since it's not doing anything to the functionality of the board. I think that in fact, the heat dissipates better without them as they block some of the vents. However, don't take my word for granted, I might be wrong. You can shoot MSI an email maybe. smile.gif

As you can see I'm not from the States and my country is a lot smaller so it was hard to come by. After several weeks of looking, I eventually found some, right under my nose since the shop was located 5 minutes away. It was hard to find because these things don't appear on the internet as much as other, more popular stuff. It's probably super easy to buy some in the US, probably from Amazon. biggrin.gif

Yes, do not do this while the heatsinks are installed. Take 'em out nicely, remove the thermal pads carefully (put them aside) and then work on the heatsinks. Don't apply excessive force. Take a pick tooth and tuck it in there to help lift the cover. It takes time and patience. Don't use metal objects/tools because you will scratch/damage it. What you can also do, is take a heat gun or a hair dryer and hit the heatsink with hot air from below (if you turn it upside down you will see the glue tape holding it in place). The heat-gun / hair dryer should slightly help the process.

You welcome...

I'm not sure I'm going to have new updates this week. I've got some uni homework to do and I sense it won't be easy. redface.gif

However, like I previously mentioned.. there will be no halting the project or any of that. It's going to be completed. The last that could hold it, are the motherboard blocks arriving late in April, which btw, I'm now considering getting only the block for the VRMs. If it can help me push a stable 5 ghz clock, then I guess I can skip the chipset block which might also complicate tube routing..
