For anyone else wanting to get creative, here is another "home made" that is far from ghetto.

How ghetto it turns out will simply be a factor of how much effort you put into the cutting job (and of course, what tools you have at your disposal).

Here is an "old" how-to guide done on an Abit NF7

Yes, if you can't find the Enzotech sinks get an old XP sink and hack saw a slice out of it. Better yet sell that board and get a better one that comes with a sink already on the MOSFET's. Best of luck to you.

I tried to cut up an old aluminum socket P3 heatsink, the serial bus looking type. But I only had a dremel, with cheap drill bits, and the cutting discs. It took forever, and I bent up the thing with a shovel and hammer.

Use more proper tools.
