    Remove part of G41 chipset heat sink?

    Keryn Dent

      Background: I have built acomputer using an ASROCK G41C-GS board [775 platform]with a E6850 cpu, in a flat desktop case. I have added fans and reversed the power supply, by modifying the case.

      However the whole system still runs very hot.

      So I want to install a low profile Scythe cpu cooler.

      To do so, I will have to cutoff the row of aluminium fins closest to the cpu on the G41 chipset heatsink.

      Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of how this will affect the G41 performance?

      Would using a discreet low level graphics card reduce the heat output of the G41

      Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.
