69xx which components need cooling

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
my dad and me modified my 4870 waterblock to fit on my 6950

so gpu, memory, iccle vrms and the larger boxy chips next to the vrm's are cooled, for the other chips im going to put lil heatsinks on and try and have them connected to the main waterblock, seems like ek cool two chips near the front of the card and leave the rest

Look on the stock cooler and the ek manual. Everything that had tape on the stock cooler and tape on the ek manual, was deemed to need cooling.

Will there be any problems not installing those extra heatsinks in the long-term?

Dremel some heatsink blocks for the larger areas? I guess you have fans blowing down. Dunno how that compares to the stock cooler/waterblock heat transfer wise.

Considering that they are actively cooled with the stock cooler and ek waterblock, by not actively cooling them you'll be putting them out of spec heat wise. I wonder about that vrm on the front of the card...
