Any idea ?

it looks like you have the clear insulation plastic strips in between your vrm and vrm heatsinks. the strips are not for that. they are for the sides of the vrm modules.

also take a closer top down picture of your vrm modules. it looks like you are using 2 of the wrong vrm heatsinks. if the bases of the heatsinks are too wide, they can make contact with parts of the card that shouldn't be in contact with those heatsinks.

By the way, i reinstall the stock cooler back again ( just to make sure if the card still alive )
Unfortunately it did not work, i keep getting black screen + two blue horizintal lines when windows boot !

For your info, i did some stupid mistakes smile.gif (real stupid) ... I swiped the RAMs with alcholic tissues while am suppose to use pencil's erase
+ there been some leaking of the heatsink's glue over the PCB frown.gif (a tiny dots)

Just got this :

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/GELID-Icy-Vision-AMD-HD6900-Rev-2-PCB-6950-6970-VRM-Cooling-Enhancement-Kit-/160709700058?pt=US_Video_Card_GPU_Cooling&hash=item256b0b69da&_uhb=1#ht_2666wt_1398

Works pretty well. Even though it says its for 6900 series it works on my 7970, no clearance issues either.

So is it possible the card isn't damaged because of me swiping the RAMs and the leaking of the glue !!, although i did reinstall the stock cooler ... same issue !.

could the problem be because of the heatsinks doesn't fit correctly and resulting this "Black Screen" !
^^
If you please could verify, today im gonna order these 7970's heatsinks

Do you guys mind posting the idle/load temps on VRM1 & 2?

Running 3dmark11 on 1000/1425 1.112v

35 idle
65 peak on load

on VRM 1 and 2.

I also have my radiator blowing it's hot air DIRECTLY at the vrm fan, so take that into account. I really have no other place to put the radiator since the H70's tube is so short.
