hi guys I am plan on geting a T.R.U.E but since I have to remove all my stock mosfet heat pipes from my GIGABYTE GA-X48-DQ6 motherboard I siad I might as well add the thermalright HR-05 IFX to my NB and the thermalright HR-05 SLI/IFX to my SB but I have a problem I have no idea what I can I add to my mosfet as the hr-09 is not compatible with my motherboard. so my question is what can I buy to keep those chips cool and if I leave them without any cooling will I have problems in the long run i will post a pic so u can see what I am talking about

do you have to remove it?i wouldnt remove it if i were you.after market cooler on mobo dont offer that much of a improvement over those heatpipes onboard.

your call.

You'll have to cool the MOSFET's somehow. If you get rid of the stock heatsink/radiator, you'll have to add small fans or water cooling blocks to them. Don't forget about cooling your north bridge and south bridge, too.

PS -- this is one of the pitfalls of many aftermarket cooler designs.
