nice video but you shouldnt Paint Heatsinks (reduces heat Dispersion) also thermal pads across the whole heatsink bottom then onto the VRMs would increase the transfer to the Heat Sink more effectively than heatsink plaster with that overall you could have maybe get a 40-45c drop instead of 30c.

Nice Cheap way of fixing a heat problem using stuff on hand. Yes Sure could have spent 10 to 20 dollars on thermal pads but for what a few extra degrees. I remember doing that a long time ago to get better performance out of a Board custom made heat sinks. Use to use extruded alloy parts from all sorts of stuff Bashed and cut Copper water pipe was good for Memory cooling.
