So let's say I were to do the vmod again, should I or can I put a RAMsink on that area becasuse quite frankly I have no clue as to if it was like that before the vmod or before it

yeah, you can put a RAMsink on it. if you're careful you can get one to fit over both of the IC's

here's mine

Well I have 16 of the Zalman ones and since the GPU is vertical the heatsinks shouldn't move anywhere, but I'm still waiting for XFX to email me about the status of "their" testing and if they can honor the warranty

Well I sent another email to XFX and they got back to me saying they accepted the RMA and another one is on the way so hopefully the second go around will be better

Also, my Thermaltake Armor will be here on Friday so I can have a totally internal setup

EDIT:

So with the Armor, I want to go with a resevoir, but should I keep the T-line to use as a fill/bleed so I do not kill my pump during filling and during bleeding it's easier to get all the water out.

I mean I already have a fillport and the necessary equipment, it would be just as good as a drain

Item Updates:

My Armor arrived today but I am not home to look at the beauty.

I also ordered a dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir and some AS5, not sure when it will come.

I sent out my radiator for I guess you would say an RMA (sent it back to the seller for either a new one or fix the current one)

My new/RMA'd XFX 7900GT will arrive on Tuesday, so if all goes well I should have my radiator hopefully by next Friday or Monday and I can try all of this again

Apparently so, I forgot to test the Vmem and when I clocked to 900 that short period of time melted it. idk, when I get the new card tomorrow I'll compare the two pics.

Everything is on the way (hopefully the new rad is on the wat too), should be up by Friday

It's a dual heatercore, I had to send the first one back due to a leak and the guy is sending me a new one.

He works at a auto shop and gets the heatercores probably from vendors, but he's replacing it and refunding the shipping, so all is good.

With the card, I wouldn't mess with the memory either. I dont know if I'm going to do it again...it's fast enough and I'll wait for new stuff to come out or upgrade to a GTX or a x1900XT (if I get extra $$$)
