What exactly are these, on the graphics card & how to cool them?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Soo, since I'm going into my Kuhler 620 any day this coming week, now... my thoughts are getting all mixed up and now, quite frankly I have no idea what is what anymore..

I've highlighted the important parts that I know of, but don't exactly know the names/it's duties.

If someone could explain (briefly) what each major component is (VRM/RAM, etc etc) and it's major duties, that'd be freaking awesome.

My main goal out of this is to know what I need to cool. Stemming off of this, since I'm straying away from an air cooler for my HD 6950 card, what heatsinks do I need for which, and where could I find em?

Thanks guys!

Below card is a HD6950.

The red is the memory.

When you take the cooler off, you'll see what parts make contact with the heatsink, there'll be thermal tape/pads
Much like this

Yep your gonna need them, and make sure you have appropriate cooling inside the case to cool the vrms. Fans near em blowing onto it and should be fine redface.gif

Was also hoping for a few other options as those are just... expensive. biggrin.gif

What about these?
http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/accessories/114/vr001.html

They say it only supports up to 6870, but AeroCooler notes it supports 6950.

I mean, when they say compatibility, I'm assuming exact fits right?
Hmmm..

It says its compatible for the 6950 so you should be fine. Although wait for a few more replies before you pull the plug on them
