Hey im looking to swap the stock gpu heatsink on my v1.0 box. Do you think that this would be better, or does anybody have any recomendations for anything better, or maybe a GPU and CPU all in one fan and heatsink combination. Thanks biggrin.gif

Sorry I don't have a link. you bolt the cpu to the holes left behind from the frame you take off. The gpu bolts into 2 screw holes that normally used to hold the motherboard down. No other modifactions are need other than removing the fram, which comes off pretty easy.
