Let's just say that you've got half an answer from Liranan. In fact, I'm not sure the small heatsinks will do any improovment unless you don't want to loose your warranty (coz I had to flatten, rasping with a file, the base of all screws located on the back of the allu backplate for about 1mm down all that to improove a better contact patch for the memory and vrm's) but for sure they'll do no harm, let's suppose doingo so I consider that did help me to get 1150Mhz for memory RS (not possible with the stock cooler)
However, the most important part you've to take care, is that you may find the cooler base don't make a perfect contact patch with the core when you decide to maintain the black stock plate of the card, forcing you to either rasp a bit of one extremity of the cooler copper base or if you preffer to better remove a small part of the backplate
I also described the operation (pictured) in an older post:
http://www.overclock.net/11791536-post1962.html

Just let me know everything's ok
And come back with some oc bench's
You showed me that link before I bought my VF3000A and I found I had nothing to sand down or remove. The cooler fitted perfectly and there was no obstruction. I don't know why you had to, as all reference coolers are one and the same.

I will say this, the Zalman is not the best. The best is the Shaman, but that's also more expensive and also quite a bit bigger. I went with the cheaper path and got the Zalman, my temperature has dropped by 20C, so, I'm very happy.

Got my XFX 6870 with Dual Fans today. The card is certainly much much quieter than the stock fans on other 6870's. It does make a bit of a whoosh sound though. The card is much shorter than the 6950 I had in their. I ran a benchmark using fraps comparing the 6950 to the 6870 on BC2 using 1920x1200 with 2X AA and 16X AF vysnc on. Here are the results:

2011-01-24 17:29:43 - BFBC2Game 6950
Frames: 8071 - Time: 134633ms - Avg: 59.948 - Min: 57 - Max: 62

2011-01-26 16:35:28 - BFBC2Game 6870
Frames: 9351 - Time: 156137ms - Avg: 59.890 - Min: 53 - Max: 63

As I suspected. The 6950 is about 5 FPS faster, which is nothing really when playing a fast paced game. Now I have to decide which card to keep. Oh the card is idling about 38 at 25% fan speed.

I'm still oc'ing mine before I post screenshot to join the club but I got a question: My Vreg temps are ALWAYS 25 degrees no matter what. Is that normal?

Stop asking "why would you do that?" We're in "the pursuit of performance" here.
Do you have Too Much Airflow?

The main difference I think is that the hot fix drivers have been tweaked slightly, meaning you get more performance. Usually that's what they do with hot fix, it's to either improve performance of compatibility.
