    I read somewhere here that someone had tried linking the master gpu heatsink with the cpu heatsink via an extra heatpipe but the effect was opposite of what they had anticipated - rather than the less hot heatsink pick up the surplus heat from the hotter one it was vice versa:)

    That's what made me think of doing what I outlined earlier, as the slave heatsink would jus take heat rather than give off as well - and the choice is really the owners whether they want to cool the gpu or the cpu that way - the latter is closer actually so that could make more sense.

    Yours could work too, I take it you never went ahead and tried?:)
