When I get my new 7800GS back from RMA (if it works) I am going to make a waterblock for it with the CNC mill I have been using to make a CPU block for Burn, but I have a couple questions. First, how critical is it to watercool the RAM? I know it would be better but since the RAM is on both sides of the card it would be very difficult to cool both sides. I could probably cool the ones on the side with the core fairly easily (even then I would need a sizeable piece of copper) but I wouldn't be able to get the ones on top. Secondly, do you think I would need to watercool that little HSI chip that "translates" the code or does it not get hotter with overclocking? Do you think I could just slap a good ramsink on there and call it good? Thanks for the advice.
