Palit's heatsink doesn't directly cool the VRMs either though.
My apologies, I thought you were replying to his latest post.

Anyways, if they didn't put heatsinks on the VRMs then the incidental airflow from the cooler might be enough to keep their temps under control, but it might be a good idea to get a better, third party cooler for overclocking. Are there any for the 560?

I probably meant vram, i'm not too knowledgeable on the subject of gpu pcb's and don't know where the memory clock is handled

Palit uses a smaller custom PCB for their 560s so IDK which ones might fit it, but Palit pretty much always covers at least one heatsink screw with their warranty sticker, and I've heard they're extremely strict about it.

IDK that I'd risk it personally.

I have also heard that even when these cards memory clocks are pushed past stability they wont always crash.. Something about how the memory is able to correct the errors..
idk.. Could be wrong about that... But what I do know for fact is that past a certain point the returns become nil and will actually start to diminish performance .. So what I would do is clock them higher and higher until you get to a point where you dont gain any more performance.
