My 790XT-UD4P looks like a BEAST without those ugly blue covers:
These things turn out to be quite hard to get off, especially when you have to fit your hand into tight places. I actually bent one of the "fins" of my mosfet cooler while trying to take it off with a screwdriver!
In case you're wondering, it's the 4th from the left in the bottom row. Apparently, bending it back to as close as it originally was seemed to remove any traces of... um... damage
In fact, I almost pulled the entire mosfet cooler right off while trying to take off the cover (yes, it was coming a bit loose
) but that doesn't seem to have done anything bad to my mosfets or my temps. Of course, I did push it down and wiggle it around a bit to make sure
I'm not too sure if there was a temperature improvement, but oh well
Also, I don't believe I've been added to the Google Spreadsheet on the first page yet
