GTX 970 VRM Heatsinks

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey, can someone link me to some VRM/VRAM heatsinks and tell me how many I need? I mounting a G10 bracket on my EVGA SSC 970 and need some heatsinks. I also have a backplate so there may be clearance issues there somewhere, but nothing that can be cut off if necessary. I am also in need of a copper shim as my card has midplate. Thanks - Horse

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=enzotech+heatsinks (higher quality, stock glue seems good)

Could you post pics of the current state of your card as well as temps now and before ?

Dunno for copper shims, could you explain their use ?

My card comes with a Midplate that I would like to keep when I mount my Kraken X61 to it, so I need a shim to make up the distance between the GPU and the cold plate on the AIO. I would prefer thermal tape instead of glue, just don't know which to get. Could you also metion which specific models are for VRM and VRAM modules? This is my card: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2015/05/08/evga-geforce-gtx-970-ssc-acx-2-0-review/1

Actually it' thermal tape, mistake, there is no specific model, just a quality gap between the 2 models.

Let me rephrase that, there appears to be many different types, and I am unsure of which specific one to get in that list of enzotechs you gave me.
