What is the hottest part of a ref gtx 680 besides the core?

Ok fellas trying to figure out if a ram sink will be enough too cool my gtx 680's. I will be putting mcw82 on them and want to know if I should use something bigger than a ram sink on certain components of the card. Thank you

The VRMs are typically the second hottest part - those are the small black squares on the right hand side. But I ran my 680 with a GPU block and just a 92mm fan blowing down on the VRMs and it was cool and fine for more than a year. If you have active cooling on them I think you can get away without sinking them.
