So I'll be getting the Freezer 4 soon, and I'm pretty sure I'll have to do some "trimming" on the NB cooler of parents' D875PBZ mobo. Question is, how many pins can be cut before the NB will overheat under load?

i agree with rally... lol... rule of thumb... measure twice cut once. U havent measured yet, so i suggest you dont even start cutting. :X
