THE COOLER & INSTALLATION
Warning removing the heatsink from most products may void the warranty.
Do so at your own risk.
Removing the EN9800GT Matrix cooler is a trivial task. On the trace side
of the PCB there are two pushpins holding down the VRM heatsink, six Phillips-head
screws attached to the ramsink module, and only four screws in the center
securing the actual cooler.
With the screws off, only a small amount of twisting is required to pop
the heatsink off. If aftermarket cooling is to be used, the tertiary heatsinks
can most likely be left in place very convenient.
The cooler's three heatpipes are soldered directly to a thin copper base
plate. The black portions of the heatsink do not directly aid in thermal
dissipation. They are there simply to provide a stable structure for mounting
and to direct airflow.
