7970 VRMs without heat sink will shut the whole system down less than 1 min or won't even make it into Windows log on screen. Don't know where you get that information from or just hear-say.
The heatsink is the whole plate in the middle.

Uninstall your current Catalyst and Asus Tweak, Afterburner, etc. Do not overclock it yet. Unstable overclock will result in crash or driver re-set.
Clean it with this (Turn off UAC to install this file) Atiman Uninstaller v.6.3.1
