Heatpipes.....

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Heres a question for you guys. Would it be a terrible idea to shave a teeny part off one of my heatpips? Like we're talking maybe a millimeter.

To give you an idea of how large they are:

A millimeter shouldn't be so bad.

Would not risk it at all.

Seen a few photos of heatpipes caving it after having a little bit shaved of them.

Not worth it

Why do you want to do it anyway?

Give my ram heatsinks some head room, Or use that ghetto chip thats on them.
the heatpipe literally is like 5mm above the ram. SO I cant even fit these:

You shouldn't need extra RAM cooling.

Bad bad bad idea............. if you somehow manage to cut through to the inner tube, the coolant liquid wont work anymore and it will be ruined.
