You wouldn't necesarily put it directly on your motherboard, but most new motherboards today have chipset heatsinks(Northbridge, Southbrige, Nforce2, etc)

Where exactly were you planing on putting a heatsink?
Where on the motherboard?

Yes, they are a b***h.

The Intel P4 standard heatsink and fan are pretty easy to put on, but a royal pain in the butt to take off.

Heatsinks are a pain because of a couple of issues.

1. They need to be tight and firm against the CPU in order for a heatsink to work correctly.

2. You have to put them on straight and stead force. I have seen many AMD chips that are cracked due to incorrect methods of putting on a heatsink.

3. Due to smaller chips and more devices on a mobo, there is little or no space to put on a heatsink and fan in the first place.

Remember back to the 386 and 486 and even the P-I when heatsinks weren't even used? I use to use a P-I 133MHz and overclock the hell out of it and crack up the voltage to get 200MHz out of that little chip with only a heatsink, no fan. And the heatsink was 6 pennies I superglued together. Now those were the days.

OOOOOOOOHHH! CPU heatsinks, now I really feel retarded.

I thought you meant that you wanted to place a heatsink somewhere else on your mobo that has never been tried before!(big misunderstanding, sorry...)
