good call... i love mine :]

i was too lazy to deal with BIOS issues on the X38 Maximus Formula and $50 when i was already spending a ton didnt seem like that much for a little extra performance... its especially good if your gonna cool on air because of the NB heatsinks... but if you try to WC, id imagine they would suck to take off... all around, good board tho... enjoy yours :] - RK

From the look of it, the main NB sink has 4 screws holding it on. So i should only have to pull that part of not the entire heatsink.

the piece starts from the grey asus heatsink all the way down to the bar that connects to the SB which can be pryed off pretty easily. Are you replacing the mosfet heatsinks?

yea but its pretty easy taking it off. You can even use a can of air and hold it upside down so it freezes the heatsink and pry it off.
