Yes, ditch the MOSFET and NB blocks...a waste of money at this stage in your WC game.

Spend the money on a full cover block instead.

Because my board didnt come with a heatsink on the mosfets..they get HOT like blister my finger hot
the nb also get abnormally hot i think cause of oc so im gonna watercool them

What some people have done is take the hs that it comes with and jsut cut the spot for the water block to go in but again no rma then.
