VRM replacements for E758-A1

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have an EVGA E758-A1 with a Mega with PP Slipstreams on it.

Works fine for the most part, except the pull fan on my mega is raised slightly because the VRM heatsink on the motherboard gets in the way.

Is there a good replacement I can get for this board so I don't have lopsided (and therefore very tonal) fans?

mount it the other way or get water blocks......i don't think those heatsinks can afford to get any smaller

there isn't that much room .......i had to mount mine so it blows upwards......might as well since hot air rises and it helps the NB

This makes me sad inside.
Why does EVGA have to use such kooky heatsinks
