why is my 6950 vreg higher after installing twin turbo pro? - Page 5

Have you actually done the finger test on the vrm heatsinks/area?

It doesn't even get hot at all. If it's 80C, you won't be able to put a finger on the sink for longer than 2-3 seconds.

I have the little sinks that come with the Shaman cooler and my vrm are not heating up. I'm not sure where the sensor is, but it isn't getting hot. Don't touch the back pcb over the vrm. The card will freeze.

I'm thinking this might be a good solution.

I'd try it, but I have no idea where to get it. nothing came up on google.
Yes, I got it directly through one of Gelid's resellers in HK or Taiwan (cant' remember now).
I was actually researching what the safe temps on the VRMs are as I'm trying to push my 6950 to the 1GHz mark on the Core.

Currently at 950MHz with 1.150v on the core and the VRMs get to about 47C after a 10 pass bench test of Metro 2033.

I'm using the temps reported by Aida64 for the VRMs.
