Personally I feel direct airflow is the best for hot vrm's. I got cheap heatsinks + airflow and i've been able to run a good overclock as well as unlocked (B55) and haven't had a single issue in the 8months the pc has been run.
I'm a cheap bastard too. Thanks for the link!

Do you think these copper ones would be better?

How did u run the fans for airflow...i am actually looking a a small 51x15 blower fan so maybe i can mount it in such a way that it would create air flow under my 212+

copper has better heat transfer so they should be better. In any case make sure you have enough room to mount them on your vrms.

Also you would be surprised by the amount of cheap computer stuff you can get from China. The heatsink on my 2600XT died so I looked on ebay and found a zalman vf700 clone for like $5 shipped

just gotta wait 2 weeks to get it though lol

i have a slim case so tower heatsinks don't fit so I had to use a profile heatsink and since those blow down it provides airflow over the areas around the CPU socket.

A small fan would do great but mounting it would be a bit tricky but it should be doable.

I found some cheaper aluminum ones if anybody is interested...very slow shipping though!

Those ones look bigger and may not fit the D-paks on the 870-G45 very well
What CPU are you planning to run the G45 with though.... if you've ever seen boards like the 890GXM-G65 or even the top end 890FXA-GD70, the MOSFET heatsinks are much bigger but do nothing to ease the amount of blow ups

Right now i am staying with my current setup...but the overclock is not the same as in my sig rig...i have it running pretty much at stock with a undervolt right now...i am waiting till june for bulldozer to how it performs, if it does not, i will be going over to intel and a completely new rig...except the case maybe.
