5870 and 6970 vrm mounts

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Looking at some pictures, it looks like both cards have the same screw distances for the vrm.

Some aftermarket coolers come with 5870 vrm heatsinks like the Prolimatech MK-13. I'm wondering if the 5870 vrm heatsink would work with the 6950/6970 vrm spacing holes. Anyone know?

Good question.
Two things you'll have to consider:

1: Height of the VRMs between the two respective cards.

2. Interference between the cooler and other adjacent components the cooler isn't meant to affect.
