First have a look at this:

Everything You Need to Know About The Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit | Hardware Secrets

Voltage regulator all explained! Will be good for better understanding.

the black flat thingies (2 metals on one side and 1 on other
These are the mosfet

Quote:
including the gray cube things beside the cpu socket
These are the Ferrite choke

And you forgot one
The capacitor, the little ''tube'' near your choke.

All of those 3 made your voltage regulator.

Quote:
what do you guys think of mx-2 between the mosfets and a heatsink?
BAD IDEA!!! The mx-2 contain silver witch is conductive!
Went dealing with mosfet the best idea is to use a thermal pad witch is non-conductive (the thermal pad will take the form of the mosfet)

Or use these:
Enzotech MOS-C1


Available at your favourite hardware store!
