I don't see how, really. If you have memory chips on the other side of the card, maybe some passive RAMsinks would be of benefit, but the GPU heatsink and fan should be wicking away most, if not all of the heat.

I'll just add in that RAM cooling isn't used as often, as it is rare that it actually gets hot.

The back side is hotter then the heat sink and blowing the heat down is no good the heat rises. is there a way to put a heat sink on the back side lol or just set a fan on it?

A fan would be your best bet.

Just put a fan blowing towards your exhaust...OR...you could get a side intake blowing straight onto it...

So are you looking to attach a HS&F to the backplate or removing the backplate and modding. This screen is something I did just cos I was bored, result was maybe a 2°c drop at idle and 4°c at load. Maybe it was just cooler in the house that day

wow nice where can I get the plastic piece and is the heat sink touching the back side did you use paste? The back side is hot enough for me to cook a hot dog lol I need to find a clean way to replace the stock heat sink too.
