@Sugita2Junko : Where did you put the temp probe on? You said the "VRM" but the VRM consists of chokes/coils/inductors/capacitors/MOSFETs/voltage regulators and not all of them really put out that much heat or need a heatsink. The only one that should have one are the mosfets.

It has a back & front plate covering. I just put the probe on the front plate which I felt was hottest, so hot I can't leave my finger for more than a sec. In between the expose mosfet (square things?) & gpu core.
