MSI 7870 OC 2GB VRM location?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey, so I recently installed an H80 onto my gpu and the core temps are great but I want to put heatsinks on the vrm, but i have no idea what they look like/where they are on this card (I'm used to seeing a strip of them in a line towards the back and a little cluster of them towards the front.

 

Here is a pic of the pcb:

 

EDIT: Never mind, apparently (Bing and) I just suck at searching for things. Used google, found an older thread that suggested looking at a water block installation guide (didn't know ek made a full-cover block for the 7870s) that had their location.

Those five square black components with a capital "F" on them are the ones you should be cooling.
