His question was SHOULD he.

I say no. It's not worth your time or risk.

Mosfets do generate alot of heat, but they can handle it. I've seen them actually unsolder themselves from boards at work and still be undamaged. If I were to put a HS on them I would use the AS3 adhesive. I would'nt really mess with the VR though. I appologise for not giving your post my full attention before responding. Luckily Burke interviened.;)

While not dealing with cooling MOSFETs, this is what modding eventually leads to once you decide everything on your board needs modification.
