Should i put memory heatsinks on my 5770?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Ive noticed quite a few pictures of people doing this with relatively high end cards and i wondered shoud i do the same?

Ive noticed that the vram on my card does get pretty hot.

What do you guys think? I have some memory heatsinks left over from my old GPU cooler. However, ive lost the white padding the goes on the bottom of them. Could i just use a small dab of thermal paste instead?

The heatsinks would be going on the top of the video card so i wouldn't have to worry about them falling off.

Was wondering about that myself. Recently got a MSI R5770 PMD1G, way cheaper than the HAWK, and yet it overclocks just the same, 960/1405 on stock voltage at the moment, no unofficial overclocking enabled in Afterburner yet. However at 1405*4=5620 Mhz the memory on this probably gets really hot so I was thinking about some heatsinks.
