It's a full-PCB solution, which covers the VRM, but I've read mixed reviews where it's said that the hydro-copper favors GPU cooling over the VRM arrays. While I'm probably safe cranking it as high as Afterburner will let me, I'm probably going to wait to see if more folks are reporting issues of burnt out VRM's caused by high vddc to their graphics cards. (Most of them appear to have disabled overcurrent protection, which I haven't.)
If the 590 comes out with a hydro-copper block in the near future, and they make it sli-able, I might try a few "suicide" runs to see how far I can push it.
