Mosfet Cooling Options?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So, as it turns out, the highest temp I'm getting right now is NOT my North Bridge like I thought, but rather, my mosfets. They're peaking out at 56C, mostly because the airflow from my CPU cooler just shoots right over the heatsink without actually introducing any air to it. Considering where the cooler sits, I COULD use a taller heatsink, but I'd have to take off the pull fan.

I'd prefer something like the Thermalright HR-09 S-type, which raises one of the sections of the heatsink to reach CPU air flow. However, none of the variants they have are long enough to fit in the holes where the stock heatsink is. The distance between pins is about 110mm, and the longest one they offer is apparently 70mm.

I've looked around, but I can't seem to find anything that offers what I'm looking for. Should I just get two HR-09's and see if I can sandwich them together while using some thermal adhesive to attach them?

That's not bad as long as they are quality.

Those little copper (or even aluminum) deals will suffice. Scythe has a pack of various mosfet heatsinks and thermal tape on newegg, they would do fine.
