Nice concept, but it kind of sucks to lose that nice I/O cover plate built in to the stock cooling.

I agree 100%. I guess the nickel one would look OK, but if you want all-black, those silver I/O towers stick out like a sore thumb, and they don't with the stock VRM cooler. The simplified tubing runs, however...bloody awesome.

I had nightmares when I routed tubing on my X79 R4E, I have 4 inlet and 4 outlets near the socket area, bloody messy.

This could solve so many issues.

maybe you can remove the heatpipe and keep the i/o cover
worst case scenario you cut it off

I like it. Unfortunately I don't have a Rampage board for it, or the money. Oh well, a boy can dream, no?

I always keep my motherboards original heatsinks in pristine conditions, you never know if you'll need them to slap them back in place for warranty.

It is best to never touch them imo.
