    furiousfords89,

    You need to open up the exhaust on that fan next to the CPU, it looks badly blocked by a lot of metal. ;)

    actually i hacked out the grills with my pliers, its just not noticeable form that angle..i only missed that certain spot from the camera angle because if i tried to remove any more metal i would completely bend my case's frame ;)

    OK, you asked for it!! :D

    .... Introducing ... the Cuprinnock Alpha 2® ... custom MOSFET sinks.

    [​IMG]

    100% Fine Silver used to join the base & fins instead of solder, which is a poor thermal conductor.
    Took a small amount of experimentation with torch techniques to get the Silver to flow
    evenly without heating the Copper too much. Only 220 degrees (F) between the two
    melting points. Must admit however, Copper has a wider Melting Range than Silver, which was an advantage here.

    Those proto-types were designed to clear the caps & toroidal coils by the mosfets, that is why they have open sides.
    The design could easily be upscaled for use as Vid RAM, Northbridge or even a CPU sink.
    And could also be modified to accomodate more fins as well. Another smaller fin piece
    could even be placed in the middle area. Which is the next design most likely.

    They started out like this by the way - a crucible of pure molten Copper melted down from scrap plumbing materials :

    [​IMG]

    Working on a couple larger designs for cooling larger chips but haven't perfected them yet.
    Don't worry, you will see them soon enough. :)

    My system barely get's warm now!! The fans are nearly silent. Now all I hear is that pesky GPU cooler fan (soon to be replaced) and a couple of case fans (also planning on replacement now that I can hear them)

    :eek: What type of mounting does that use?!!!!?
    (It is a real heatsink isnt it?)

    My heatsinks arent anything special...
    I have the socket A coolermaster heatsink that is just like the blue thing on the previous page and a zalman passive heatsink for my video card.

    Here you go...

    Chipset Cooler:
    COOLER MASTER RT-UCL-L4U1 40mm Sleeve Blue LED Light Northbridge Cooling Fan/Heatsink

    CPU cooler:
    COOLER MASTER Hyper 6+ RR-UNH-P0U1 100 mm Rifle Bearing Cooling Fan/Heatsink

    The mounting hardware came with the kit and worked quite well. Probably some of the easiest I've worked with in a while.

    When I first saw the thread title I thought it was devoted to custom designed & modded heatsinks.

    But since we are talking lapp jobs ...

    No polishing compound whatsoever.
    Just 2,000 grit paper, a tempered mirror, plenty of clean water, and a lot of elbow grease.
    A little experience helped too. :D

    lol, I never actually considered them "sexy" but I'll take it!! Surprisngly, I didn't realize that Newegg doesn't have decent dimensions for these guys. I'll have to break out a tape measure tonight or something and make some simple measurements for you guys. I will say that some video cards simply won't be able to fit in between them.

    **edit** Just found some great info on the CoolerMaster website with some good dimensions 'n stuff:

    Chipset cooler

    Hyper 6+ CPU cooler

    Enjoy!!

    I have both of those and I can only use the chipset cooler as on my s939 mATX board the Hyper 6+ blocks the CM chipset cooler. :(
