No idea if I got lower temps as I mounted a noctua 120mm fan under the kraken fan on my drive cage for more direct airflow to the VRM's. The heatsink does get pretty hot so I think it helps a bit. Max VRM temp I get is about 90C with 1400mV. (
I was able to place an order on this site: http://www.pc-parts.nl
They deliver in Belgium, UK and possibly some other European countries. High transport fees however.
In my case, I had no VRM heratsink before, this is why I got a huge improvement. I don't overclock too much the GPU yet , merrely looking for silence/perfomance tradeoff.
To reduce the air gap between the sink and the VRM, and sanded a bit the bottom of the sink feet. I don't think there's much space left there. Besides, I didn't ziptied it, I enlarged the side holes to use the delievred screws. This way I can apply some pressure on the thermal pad.Edited by Shine6 - 2/17/14 at 2:23am
