Default Tekin RS Pro?

Just wondering if you can remove the wire posts? Never much cared for them.

They are the heat sink.

The manual states not to cover them with anything, as they act as heat sinks.

So do what you will, but you have to ask yourself....

DO NOT remove the posts from the RS PRo. You can cause more damage than it's worth. Both power boards must have sufficient contact between them.

If you want to remove part of them you can cut them shorter but this DOES reduce their ability to remove heat from the unit...
