i was thinking of using my coolerMaster heatsink
No.. Meaning that the surface area can be too big, it's just that the extra surface area won't be doing anything. It won't hurt, but it won't do anything either. I believe that you can actually reduce the height of the fins and get the same level of cooling, but Kaitain can confirm that, being the closest we have to an expert on all things fluid flowing!

Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
