    How did you bend the heatpipes? Can you post a picture from the side?

    Thanks for your help.

    I just do it by hand...

    If you want a more technical way to do it you might have luck using some pipe to brace against or help apply force against a fixed item (bench vice or whatever is handy).

    lol late reply sorry for that.

    i just carefully clamped the heatpipes to a surface and bent the heatpipes near the base and near the rad.

    those 8mm heatpipes are tough though, the 6mm ones are way easier.

    yep

    Yes there is quite a difference in temps, idle is about 37c, full load is in the 40s depends on what your running, so made a big difference. Stock i was hitting 60c +.

    Thanks a lot...

    I hope to use another HR, maybe soldering both to have a unic heatsink.

    Also, the temps are really good, here's a screen:



    As can you see, the delta is about 3-4 degrees from idle to full.
