MSI 980 TI Gaming 6G Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys!

I bought the Kraken G10 the other night along with a Corsair H75 to cool my MSI 980 TI. I've read on various forums that you don't need extra heat sinks to cool the VRM because the card already has them installed. I've also heard from various people that I need to put a 25x25x1.5mm shim on the chip so the H75 can reach it. Is that necessary?

I dunno about the shims, but better safe than sorry for VRMs

If your card looks like the one below when naked, then you're fine. MSI apparently added a nice passive block from the factory.
