I wonder if this would work for my UD3P. It has a bigger problem with VRM temps and it would be nice to set it up as a secondary system. I fixed the northbridge temp problem by replacing the factory paste which was not only ultra-thick but also dried out and cracked. But, the push pins don't hold the heatsink down very well either. I can see why they want it loose, though, since the die is bare.

The Stilt suggested that I remove the VRM sink, lap it, and replace the thermal pad with paste and insulted screws. I went to Microcenter and they had no insulated screws. I also tried the hardware store. Even without lapping the VRM sink I bet removing the thermal pad and using paste would probably help a little. However, I do have the stuff for lapping since I lapped my 8320E and the air cooler.

I would be sure to check what thermal paste you use. ie, dont use one containing silver, because the heatsink will most likely be made of aluminum.

I have non-conductive paste for this purpose.
