    1) "EC Mod" (firmware)
    and
    2) "Cooling" (for hungrier CPU)

    not "mod AND cooling for EC"

    OK then. I am assuming it's gonna need a beefier heatsink with more pipes?

    Yep. Just looking at the TM CPU heatsink, it has 4 pipes and the small 2nd grill (although without fan). But also, they are located under the main heatsink plate with only a thin shim for IHS contact, unlike prior P870 CPU HS where the heatpipes are on top of the main plate

    Also the whole fan shroud is copper

    This is an alternative kind of pipe ...

    well, the 4th pipe isn't even going to the main grill/fan anyway so a small pipe and grill might work? will probably need to mod a bit of the frame to fit but that's something i can handle maybe. LOL

    Would be interested in seeing how @Mr. Fox does his CPU heatsink.

    Is the fan shroud soldered to the radiator? If not a copper shroud is pointless.

    at the very least it should be soldered to the heatpipes judging from the picture...

    The 3rd main pipe are thicker vs. on the older HS as well.

    Can simply adding more heatpipes help?

    sure thing, if uve got the space for it. increases both heat transfer speed and overall cooling capacity :)

    Go full @Coolane?

    I'm sure there's enough clearance to add another layer of pipes and have it sit above the grill like on the 980DT heatsink.
