Default Removing NB & VRAM heatsink

OK, my original post is pretty out there so I'm changing the topic a bit. I found a PDF for installing a replacement water block for the chipset, so I know I can remove it safely. Now, how safe is it to leave the chipset heatsinks off completely? Any suggestions on where to get replacement heatsinks for the chipset heatsinks?

Original post:

I got a Asus Crosshair 4 from BST section for an awesome price. However, I also got a PCI 64 RAID card that won't fit because the NB heatsink is blocking the card. Can a M4A87T owner confirm that there's enough gap between the SATA ports to fit the exposed PCI fingers? Another board suggestions?
