Gigabyte GTX 580 Windforce x3 question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Do the Gigabyte GTX 580 Windforce x3 have VRM cooling?
post #2 of 6
Event the Galaxy GTX 460 has it I would be surprised if this didn't have it.

I know Gigabyte GTX560 Ti Windfore 2x has it. And I think their GTX570 has it too.

To be certain, perhaps you can pm ShtSh00ttr and see if he can check it for you.

I sent Gigabyte a E-mail. Got answer that it got cooling on the GPU, Memory and Mosfet. Although i specifically asked for VRM's.

Are VRM's cooled when Mosfets are cooled?

If it doesnt you could easily pickup a set of heatsinks and stick them on..

I put them on my 470 because the vf3000 didnt cover the 4 raised ones near the pci-e slot...

You can usually find a kit of 8 or so of the copper ones for $10.. You will have a few extra which will come in handy one day..

I would think so.
VRM usually refers to the group of ''MOSFETs + Chokes + Capacitors''. And heatsinks are rarely put on a choke or a capacity, so cooling on MOSFET likely means cooling on VRM.

To confirm, I dropped by a store to take a peek. The red arrow in the pic below points to the heatsink for the MOSFETs.
