!VERY strange cooling for graphics card (memory only partially covered): problematic?
so I've this MSI ITX form graphics card where not only the GPU but also the VRM, chokes (do these need to be cooled?) and VRAM are cooled by the heatsink
but weird thing is, the memory chips are only HALF covered by the thermal pads:
so this looks like totally stupid illogical design but my concern is can this cause a heating problem instead of preventing it?
> like can this cause a "thermal imbalance" or something with half of the memory chip overheating while only the other half is cooled?
ps. and for the lower right chip, only 1/4 is cooled! so will 3/4 of the chip heat up & only 1/4 be cooled?
