leaving you with the stock cooler plate to play with. Stock fan and the plate should be plenty to cool just the memory and VRM. Also, gives you a chance to go for a stock water cooled look.
Maybe a small brick under the vapor chamber and let the oven and gravity do the work for you.
How hot should you heat the oven and for how long to get the heat fins off the vapor chamber? Any idea? EDIT nvm you were talking about taking the vapor chamber off the gpu plate.
