    Hey, I am not sure why I wrote that comment! I think godto's comments and a PM had me confused with this post and a EP45-UD3R, it has a heatpipe.

    The EP45-DS3R for sure does not!

    And I would advise the above mentioned cooler for the MCH for sure!!!

    Very easy, just be careful when you put it back as there is a Bare silicon chip under there.

    What you do is on the backside of the board CAREFULLY with needle nose pliers pinch the plastic pins together and push them right thru. Then just wiggle the heatsink and It will come right off. If you have issues you can warm the backside of the board with a hairdryer, but not too hot. It should come right off though, then use some Arctic Clean and get all the facotry Gunk off there and replace with NON Conductive and put back your new heatsink or the old one

    You can use screws to replace the push pins, but if you do be VERY Careful not to tighten to much and crack the chip. LEAVE the square pad on there it is to cushion the heatsink so it does not crack the chip right away
