The mosfet sinks fit fine for me, I just cleaned each one thoroughly with Isopropyl alcohol and stuck it on after they dried. I'll take it out in a few days to see if they're still there.. but looks good so far!
I did not buy the Thermalright VRM cooler in addition though.
I installed the Shaman last night - HUGE improvement overall already! The loudest thing in my case now is a set of Nexus 120mm "Real Silent" fans to give you a reference.
I'm running ~29C idle and ~45C under load after an hour of Battlefield BC2.
This being compared to the 80-90C I was...
First drive is waiting at my door step, no signature required. That was a lot faster than I expected!
The other 2 are delayed until the 24th. That was a lot slower than I expected!

Would it be possible to build a cheap HTPC and leave the decoding to the workstation? 1080p is a must.
I'm trying to build an HTPC as cheaply as possible for 1080p and...
Currently, I have a 20" 2005FPW monitor which would be my main display until I get a HDTV in the Fall. I'd like to have some kind of KVM to swap between my computer and a 60GB PS3 without having to move any cables around, how can I accomplish this process?
The rest of my system is in...
I'm just curious, if I erase the metadata on my Raid 5 Array, is it possible to restore the data within intact? I'm assuming the usage of some third party tools is necessary.
