Re: Simple Modification for Prolimatech Megahalems

thanks for the input people. sorry to let you all down but i don't own a megahalems, i can't afford one right now, and as i feared - it seems the fins are stuck together at the outer edges. what an awesome day job it would be though, to spend 40+ hours a week designing and testing new heatsinks. i s...
