heatsinks on 6950?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Would you put heatsinks on the memory if you were not overclocking?

No, unless you wanted to for ascetic reasons

the misspellings in this thread are amusing. =) While im not familiar with that card, whether or not you need heatsinks on the ram would depend on your temperatures, if you can, i would just to be safe, but if your temperatures are not too hot under load, you'd be OK without them. Getting heat down will extend lifespan of the memory chips, so i personally would do it just to get the most out of my cards. I have to with mine cause mine get SUPER HOT.
