Thanks for responses thus far guys.
I shouldve explained better, but the stock heatsink im using right now is actually touching one of the supports for the case, and i dont want to chop-chop unless i have to. Some of the heatsinks arent exactly top-quality ones, and i want to make sure that there will be a noticable improvement in the temps if i do decide to change.
Also, this is motherboard Minion is using:
Newegg.ca - JetWay JNC84E-LF AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
You can't quite tell from the pics, but the NB and VRM heatsinks both come very close to the socket and are somewhat taller than regular ones... which gives me more concerns about finding a replacement. I'll have to measure everything precisely i suppose.
