Stock RAM sinks on Sapphire 6850 good enough?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Found a review of the card I've got on the way and I noticed they have ram and VRM sinks on it already. I'm also considering putting an Accelero S1 Rev2 on it to please the wife.

Is this going to be sufficient enough I wonder? Stock set up will have air blowing over them. Hopefully I can still fit a side fan with the cooler but will it be enough air going over them? Probably will have to use aftermarket sinks on those as well?

as long as you have a heatsink of some sort and some sort of air flow then it should be just fine.

Just any sort of airflow? Or airflow directly at it? I'm think there's a possibility that I'll have to remove a side fan because of the size of the Accelero. I'm praying not, but...

I'm thinking if you put a fan on the accelero, then you will be just fine.

FYI, Sapphire 6850 doesn't have any RAM heatsinks.

There is a big VRM Heatsink tho.

I'm going to pick up some Enzotech BCC9 RAM heatsinks in the next week or 2.

I will post up photos and mods required to make it fit.

I got to looking around and couldn't find one. It appears everyone just uses rubber bands or zip ties to attach their fans.

Oooh... copper. I will probably get those soon.

By the way I'm OC'ing card at moment. We've got 935 on the core clock so far no errors after 5 min. Still testing. 940 had errors. Top temp was 63 degrees using stock cooler. 45% fan. 70 degrees on the RAM.
