How hard is it to remove/install the heatsink? is it just thermal paste that is in between the heatsinks and the chips? I am thinking of painting mine but I want to know what I am getting into before I do it.Originally Posted by Sin0822
review of the board in my sig has many pictures with the heatsinks removed. You want the physical review one not the performance one.
EDIT: here you go i just took these, FYI the heatsinks on the B2/B3 are interchangeable, the B2 is exactly the same board as the B3. Physically they are at least, and that is why there is no physical revision change.
I have the B3 board as well, but its running so i am not taking the heatsinks off again tonight, i did it last night when i was microscopically comparing the two. other than the fuses for the USB ports being exactly opposite orientation nothing is different other than the chipset itself.
