EVGA X58 Mosfet heatsink question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just a quick question about the Classified E760 Mosfet cooling. I used to water-cool this with an EK block, but now that isn't really viable (using it for mining and water-cooling would just be a PITA) and for some reason I lost the Mosfet cooler and a little black heatsink that goes under the huge heatsink. (Mosfet pic http://assets.vr-zone.net/6775/galle...nk_Mounted.jpg and here is the mosfet cooler with the little black cooler http://assets.vr-zone.net/6775/gallery/PWM_VTT_SINK.jpg)

I just ordered some of these Enzotech heatsinks (4 of them, just in case) http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/enmofocomohe.html
Will these fit?

Here is a pic where I highlighted the areas I need to cover.




Thanks!

They'll fit about anything. Attach them with thermal tape or, better yet, silicone rubber sealant. Do not use epoxy or super glue or you won't be able to remove them later on.

Can you instead use some long heatsinks that cover several MOSFETs? If computer parts dealers don't carry them, check electronics dealers -- Ebay, Jameco, Marlin P. Jones, All Electronics.
