1... 2... or 3... Stock heatsink mod. - Page 4

I still have it, its on a self behind me right this moment. Never go to make a bracket for it. But I did do a 'sitting on top' test with my finger holding it down. Worked pretty good tbh, not bad for a boredom killer.

I recomend attaching as many fans as possible (with the flow towards the rear exhaust). When cooling with air, CFMs are your little buddies.
Air pressure is more important. CFMs can supplement this, but on a whole it's air pressure and surface tension of the transfer medium. This is basic Thermo.

Heh, I think I'll save this for the next rebuild (Same mobo/Q9550/8gb DDR2/5670 CF).
