I would like to replace the cpu heatsink in my rev. 1 B&W g3. Anybody have any ideas on that? My only other choice is to put a fan on it which is okay, but I plan on overclocking it before I install a new g4 zif. -maestro

Don't worry too much about it. I had mine OC'd by 100mhz and didn't shut down for weeks. Ran smooth. Didn't get very hot either. If you are paranoid, stick some Arctic Silver, or a Thermaltake on that bad boy.

the rev.1 heatsink is quite short but it gets the job done. the rev. 2 heatsink though is a good amount taller. like whitlock said.. use thermal paste. I don't even have an overclocked cpu but I still use it just to be sure its always performing tip top.

Last night I attached a fan to the heatsink. I also used artic silver 5 paste on it. I just prefer to over do it with a larger heatsink since the is no way to monitor the temp of the cpu. Hoperfully the rest of the parts will come in today and I can try it out. -maestro
