My case is that I cut the end of the heatpipe of my TT Frio Heatsink, in order for it to fit my Casing. After I put it all back in place, I suddenly noticed that the temps skyrocketed up to 75C under heavy load. Is the reason because of what I did with the heatpipe? Thanks in advance!
My system specs: i5-4690k Z97 MX Gaming 5 Thermal Take FRIO CLP0564

Yep, you can't cut heatpipes. I thought they were filled with liquid, but AFAIK, they are NOT solid and cannot be cut.
they are filled with a fluid, that changes from liquid to gas as it heats and cools, so your HSF is now a paperweight. Just goes to prove how much impact the fluid has, vs just the copper.
