how to cool VRM's on gtx 470?
I got a Danger Den DD-GTX470.
I did then OCP mod on my card and use 1212mV and after about 15mins of playing a game I start getting artifacts and I think its b/c of the VRM is getting hot. What and how do I cool them down?

Wow, that's a ton of volts..haha

I've got the same overclock as yourself, and I'm using 1.100v. More volts does not always mean better.

Go back to stalk volts, then increase the OC, when it becomes unstable increase the volts till it's stable, then add a bit more. Then OC a little more. Rinse and repeat till you get desired results and have the least amount of volts needed.
