    Is it possible to use the HDPlex 8 heat pipe passive heat sink from the HDPlex 2nd Gen H5 and use it with the additional Streacom ST-LH6 inside the Streacom DB4 for increased cooling potential? This would increase the number of heat pipes from 6 to 8.

    I am aware that Raiju has used the HDPlex 8 heat pipe heat sink inside the Streacom DB4, as can be seen here in these forums: https://hardforum.com/threads/custom-db4-build.1931503/#post-1042979774 but I have not found anyone who has used the HDPlex 8 heat pipe heat sink with the ST-LH6. If it can’t be done ‘out of the box’ because of the length and angles of the heat pipes, I'm wondering if there is any reason why different length 6mm heat pipes can’t be used, and if those heat pipes can be angled with a device like this: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/4-in-1-...ving-Plier-180-3-16-1-4-5-16-3-8/142860154372

    Anyone see a problem with this?

    Any ideas?
