Sapphire 1GB 4870 and FC blocks

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anyone know if there are any Full Cover blocks that are compatible with the non-reference Sapphire 1GB 4870.... My GPU temps are as happy as a pig in crap but the VRM are too hot to touch for more that 2-3 sec. I have the heat sink on there that it came with but it's not doing much without a fan on it.

This the guy I'm using.

I would not bother with the full cover blocks. Just aim a fan at the VRM sinks. What are your current VRM temps?

My 512MB 4870 would tell me the vrm temps in everest but the sapphire 1GB does not. I suppose the fact that I can touch it at all for more than a second or two and not get burnt means it's under 70-80C.

wait your actually only cooling the core? Is that safe for the card? I ask because i have a maze 4 and can't find ram sinks.
