I got these few mad ideas for heatsinks;

First was inspired by the Swiftech MC462-A. Now if somebody would change those aluminum rods into long standard issue bolts (assuming there are threads, or threads were made) he/she could gain much more surface to air because of the threads.

The second one was inspired by someone who had cut the PSU's fan grill (the normal pressed one) out and replaced it with that fine metallic grill. Dang, cant find the picture... Well, anyhow the idea was to make a stack of these grills into size of a heatsink and weld the stack to the base. Theyd have to be welded "sideways" (not on top of each other) to attach them from one side. And the fan would need to be on side. But it should provide some air surface.

Wow, what a brain farts these were... :)

I don't mean to discourage you but I think if it was that simple that there would be much less watercooling in this world :)

the swiftech MCX-370 has the increased surface area pins, it only marginally helps out though.
