Voltage Regulator Modules. They regulate the power going to the core and memory, having heatsinks on them is strongly advisable when overvolting because they will get hot.

how do i check?

I just checked and the EVGA Classy does not have VRM heatsinks of any sort whereas the MSI uses a unisink (not great but adequate) covering the VRMs and memory. I would go with the MSI without a doubt now.

In this video below you can see at the end when he removes the cooler there is no heatsink for the VRM.

LOL i was watching same vid. just didnt know what VRM;s were

Not sure what the MSI card needs but the EVGA card needs a 6pin and 8pin power connector as well.
post #756 of 2759
EVGA got 1 6pin and 1 8pin while the MSi got only 2 6pins? wierd
Does Nvidia have 448 core driver out? Heard there was a problem

At about 7:10 when the card is completely bare, to the immediate left of the two air slots and below the one capacitor (circle that is half red half silver) that is all by it's self is a row of 18 little black chips, those are the VRMs.

see that. so will it matter that the EVGA one got 1 more pin for OC or no?

Maybe if you were going to be benching them on LN2 or something, but for air cooling I would much rather have a VRM heatsink any day of the week and would therefore get the MSI. Another thing to consider is if you think you might do water cooling then I believe the EVGA card can fit a full cover block whereas the MSI could only accept a GPU only block. People have been saying that the EVGA will take an EK GTX480 full cover block but I don't know one way or the other about that.

A few posts on the EVGA forums confirm the 480 waterblocks fit the 560 Classified.
You will be able to go full block with the EVGA.
