It cools down the Mosfet chips as such for better performance as they do get rather hot..It hasnt got all that much relation with the CPU from my knowledge. You can remove it by poping out the white plastic bits out from the back of the board but you need to keep it on there anyway. You cannot remove the actual Mosfets though as there part of the Motherboard.

Information on a Mosfet : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOSFET

mosfets are related to power.. no you cant remove them.. and i dont think your looking at the right things if ya can unscrew them most are solider right to the board. yes you can cool them use mini chipset heatsinks and you can cool them with a fan it is recomended these are basicly the pwm (pulse width modulation) chips i believe very important

Yes that Asus heatsink is used to cool the mosfets and should not really be disturbed make sure that it is seated properly also for best cooling..and those white plastic things arnt jumpers there pins as such.
