EK copper shim for 7970

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How inefficient is using the shim? Anyone have an idea of how many C hotter an aftermarket cooler would run using the shim versus if the cooler was directly on the die.

Yeah I saw that article and also saw people posting awesome temps around 50s for using an antec620 on their 7970 cards.

Anyway I just went ahead and ordered the shim to use with my shaman cooler.
