Where to put the heatsinks HD 6790 Non reference...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I bought the Arctic Accelero Twin turbo and I want to know where to put the heatsinks, this is my card:

450

These are the heatsinks of the Twin Turbo Pro:

240

Thanks!

The smallest heatsinks are for the VRM's, the long long one will install over the top VRAM chips and allow the heatpipes to pass through it, the set of heat heatsinks is for the VRAM on the right sides. Make sure you are getting the VRM"s properly covered.




This one might be better since it's an ATI card as well:

Yes, but look at the left upper corner, there is another one, also at the right side middle there are other two right?

Ouch you are right. That's very odd. Most cards I've seen have them lined all up in a row in between the chokes and a row of capacitors. Seems like a very odd layout for a card.

So technically you could use one heatsink ( Trying to visualize the size) for 3 VRM's and yet that leaves the odd one out on the left uncooled.

Maybe someone else can come in here and give it a look see. I don't want you to ruin anything right now.

It's an XFX card, also the stock cooler didn't come with heatsinks over the VRM's and neither the VRAM's.... So it won't hurt if one or two VRM's are without heatsink...

Uhh... yes it will... and it will hurt very bad. The stock cooler must have had contact with them... are you sure it really didn't?
