Hi, this weekend I drilled and tap the holes to attach the brackets for the CPU  secondary heat sink, may be I overkill using four screws for each bracket, some photos below, thanks for watching

Hi, I test this modified CPU cooler in a sort of open test bench outside the case, adding the Scythe Mugen 3 attached to the CPU back plate and with with a 2mm thermal blue pad in between, so far the results are not quite special, room temperature about 26 degrees Celsius, and the CPU was reaching 40 degrees at idle even with such extra CPU cooler attached to the back plate.

 

The next step I plan to increase a  bit the cooling performance is to increase  the size of the extra heat sink at the base of the front CPU cooler from 100x40x20mm to 100x60x25mm, below are shown some photos, thanks for watching

Hi, the newest brackets are ready punched on 2mm hard stainless steel, new hopefully this weekend I can drill holes for the new brackets on the upgraded bigger heatsinks, thanks for watching

Hi, I am going to try to connect this large heat sink 22x146x600mm (which is attached to the case using a thermal pad) to the motherboard  or direct to the processor using a flat copper sheet, as a mean to connect both and transfer some heat, obviously if connected to the motherboard I need to be very careful to avoid short circuit to ground,  below some photos.

 

I dont know and also I am not sure how much heat I will be able to transfer to this large heat sink using this method, but is just a matter to try and test the results, thanks for watching :)

Hi, so far one way I was thinking to transfer some heat from the motherboard to the large heat sink is by using a flat copper sheet (0.5mm thick) from below the motherboard and reaching the underside of the large heat-sink, obviously I need to be very carefully to avoid the underside of the mobo to touch such copper sheet, I dont know how much heat will be able to move towards the heat-sink, but I need carefully to try.

 

Another way to transfer the heat can be by connecting such copper sheet directly from the CPU and after some bending reach the underside of the large heatsink, below some photos of the first idea, thanks for watching
