GPU mod cooling, Help please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am about to mod my ATI 7970 with Antec 620
449

My question is:
562
Do i need to cool ALL the green circled with heatsinks ( VRAM ... etc ) ?
or
Won't the airflow inside the case be enough ? I have a very good airflow

+ I am using these fans under the GPU
450
^
Wouldn't be enough to cool the components ?

Bottom line, is it important to get heatsinks for ALL the components ?

the vrms yes they are the long ones on the far side and the single on on its own close to the connectors.
as for the memory they should be ok but there is no harm in extra cooling.

infact the card picured looks like it has the same screw holes for the gelid vrm cooler

im not sure if it will fit though the pic you showed me has the screw holes in the same place but unsure of the width but its worth a gamble or the only other i can think of is enzotech heatsinks.
i have them on my ram but one fell off the other day.
the gelid screws in tight keeps my vrm at low 30s to low 40s.

i think there is someone in us selling them aswell look in the ati thread
