Hmmm... Mega man. Is this the one that requires cooling? Those circled in red.

those are your Vram's. Memory Modules... I would just point a fan @ them. They didn't receive any active cooling with the stock cooler besides a warm breeze from the blower. It's always best to shoot for over kill, but your best bet is to just point a fan @ them.

vrm= voltage regulator

vram=memory.

I would try to avoid thermal adhesive as much as possible as it like a permanent thing which require sanding it down if I want it to be removed in the future for RMA/resale purpose. I'll see what I can do. Is a 240mm rad sufficient for CPU+GPU setup?

Thermal pads for vrm's work better than thermal paste, they provide a cushion so when tightening the block to them there is a better contact and less chance if cracking the vrm.

I'm using a universal waterblock. There will
Be zero contact with the rams or any other module except the GPU chip.

In short, highly unlikely, specially for a fermi GPU. I would personally go for @ least a 360, even better 360 and 240 should be a good amount to keep both very cool. & yes, thermal adhesive is gross... You may be able to find double sided thermal tape? May want to go over to "The Mod" club for better advice.

True, though if you read the directions supplied by most waterblock manufacturer's they recommend using both. A dot of TIM directly on the vrm/vram & thermal pad on top.

Very true I used both aswell, thermal paste with thermal pads but the Ek waterblock instructions only said to use thermal pads supplied. I just used the both from previous experience.

That make's me lol... Seem's EK is sending mixed message's. The instructions that came with my clean CSQ titan block's say to use both.
