Is there any thermal benefits from removing the "Gigabyte" nameplate from the Northbridge heatsink on a ga-ma785gmt-ud2h?

My money would be on no as they likely wouldn't have put it there if it was detrimental to performance.

well, it does block a potential exit for heat to dissapate. I'm not sure how it is attached, but I have read somewhere of someone taking it off, but I don't know what the results were.

Perhaps but does it not also add a large flat surface that dissipates heat? ;)

Plus, if you remove it, how will you know that you have a Gigabyte motherboard without looking really close at it.
