They used sell those FTW VRM sinks on the EVGA website, but just checked they're not available now. Fyi just a few plain old RAM sinks would work provided they're not too tall to fit under the EE's fan. Size 50x12mm not too sure about height.

Or you can be like me and make your own. biggrin.gif

I usually use ramsinks, & there are these for the small areas you may not be able to get a ramsink on right.

@ qiqi1021..very nice...you modded your heatsink as well?, or is that an aftermaket heatsink? I saw this from newegg :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835425005&cm_re=chipset_heatsink-_-35-425-005-_-Product

I probably might use these on the VREG's...now...as far as the VRAM and cooling that off, i probably have no choice but to make my own right? because i opened up my 460's and this is what i saw:

contact between vram and heatsink is little to none....any suggestions? and one last question..what are the dimensions of that copper plate on your heatsink?

Those look like they'll work, though keep in mind you might have to file/sand them down to clear the fan. The EVGA sink looks about 6mm tall.

You've got those thermal pads on your stock cooler making contact with the VRAM so no need for RAM sinks, which aren't really necessary anyway since GDDR5 runs cool.

I've got an aftermarket HS, Thermalright HR-03 Plus mounted with a bracket I made. The base is 42x45mm and the copper is what you get after you lap it.
