Because some memory/vrm heatsinks are falling off, what if the original metal plate (which is cooling vrm/memory) stays on? I mean, only gpu heatsink and fan are taken off, plate stays. If its lower than gpu, i think twin turbo would still fit, plus metal plate is cooling vrm more efficiently (and it wont fell off!). Can this work??
The voltage regulator heatsink on my msi was too tall.
I did remove it and cut it down. It's still bigger than putting several of the heatsinks that came with the cooler and it has a mounting system with spring loaded posts that insure that it's not going anywhere.
I just glued the other heatsinks on this morning so I haven't been able to check to see how well attached they are yet. I definitely recommend the tape regardless though. I can see the paste being very messy for some people and putting heatsinks on both sides of the card is less than optimal with the paste.
I put four on one side and only two on the other because of the mounting bracket for the cooler. Be sure to attach the heatsinks with the bracket on so you know which heatsinks not to do.
I'll post back with a follow-up. I wonder if I'll miss my PC sounding like it has a turbocharger in it?
