I'm an overclocking enthusiast and I like pushing things above stock speeds, hence my concern with these naked memory ICs. I'm guessing if you overclock your memory the temps on these little guys should rise quite a bit.

So, to overcome this building flaw, I found a seller here in my region that has aluminum heatsinks with thermal pad pre applied that would fit perfctly to cover those ICs. (picture below)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


At that size, each aluminum heat would cover entirely 2 ICs. So 2 heatsinks, side by side, would do the job.

What do you guys think? They cost almost nothing, really cheap.
Also, is there any problem that the thermal thing is not exactly the size of the ICs? they are larger, so they would cover the whole ICs and there would be parts touching nothing (I looked here in my card, the little conductors near the ICs are leveled a little bit lower so they would touch the thermal pad nor the heatsink it self.

What do you guys think? Good idea?

Those are not the vRAM modules.. someone can say what they are, not sure myself. They're behind the backplate itself. I did read of a person who put thermal pads on them somewhere else but never saw a response if it helped at all.

there are plenty of huge cases if that's what you want. there are cases around the same size as yours that just have better support for watercooling also. first you get an idea of what you wanna do then you narrow down some cases that can accommodate well enough. I'd be glad to help out anytime if you want too. thumb.gif

well it wont be for a bit still.. as I am still out of work and reeling from holidays AND have a baby on the way lol, but I would like a case that is roughly the same size.. and will have to decide on cooling parts later.. but who knows.. by the time I have all the funds for this.. it may be time to upgrade my CPU again.. my FX-6300 is terribly old.. but with the FX-9xxx series.. and the i7's there may come a time to swap out.. so I guess I would just need to get a block that will fit both unless I upgrade before

hell I've even thought about going smaller.. something like the Air 540

although....... there is a REALLY nice build I saw with my current case.. I think it was on here.. and it was done in the color scheme that I already have and love so very much

3-5 fps less do you think it's important ?

Guys, I have yet to understand before I pick the monitor, does the STRIX 970 support dp 1.2? Anyone can confirm? No "clear" answer on google.
