Thanks for chiming in, that's reassuring. I have some CoolLaboratory Pro (liquid metal) and some Arctic Silver 5 laying around so I'm sure either of those will do the job. Just want to confirm that the base of the stock HSF is copper so I don't risk corrosion between the CLP and aluminum HSF.Just wanted to drop by and let you know I replaced the cooling paste on the X10SDV-TLN4F (which was just a nasty, hard square blob not even covering the entire CPU) by some regular paste I had laying around. It dropped the CPU temp from 48 degrees to 42 degrees and it also dropped the fanspeed a couple hundred RPM making it much quieter. Good luck!
Here are two homemade mods which appear to help. 1st one simple and effective..AM sure some aftermarket sinks will come if there is a sufficient sized market, we better not hold our breath...Luckily for me its now the dead of winter here in NY and my load temps (while doing multiple simultaneous transcodes) never really get much above 62-65C.
Awesome, Thanks!!!Here are two homemade mods which appear to help. 1st one simple and effective..AM sure some aftermarket sinks will come if there is a sufficient sized market, we better not hold our breath...

Have you seen the following thread?Been thinking about the VGA coolers ...and made the first trial with errors.
The tests were done with an Arctic Cooling Accelero L2 PLUS
Long story short: there is no match in the hole pattern of the frame holding the heatsink.
Need different frame or make custom holes..
The good news is that the bundled screws match the thread in the mainboard (Asrock D1520D4I)
