    I'm kind of curious myself. Didn't think there were any obvious hotspots on the board that hadn't been sinked already. There are a couple of bare regulators in some spots, but they don't seem to get more than a little warm on my board?

    You can also use them for your RAM ( if they come naked ) or your graphics card memory if you're using a waterblock on the GPU ( VGA )

    I got reply from master Saaya:

    "hey man,
    well i asked foxconn to include those heatsinks so you can glue them onto any chips you want to cool on the board. the sas chip for example gets a bit hot, and so does the pata/esata jmicron chip.

    they are fine for normal operation, even in a badly ventilated case, but i personally would like to add heatsinks to it to cool them and i know many people would."

    Now we know!
