I'm not spending $4 + $4 shipping on a piece of copper...
 

 

 

If you are so adamant about spending $4, this is the only option without killing the card. Your call.

Or remove the shim completely. Not recommended.

it's $8 man - stupid shipping kills it. $4 for plate and $4 for shipping. I'm gonna sell my card on eBay for $600. Current bid is at $580 + $20 shipping biggrin.gif

That is what I call STUPID. You can go buy a sheet of copper and cut it with your dremel for the price of a six pack. Instead you mod it this way to completely void your warranty?? Cmon now.

i just noticed something. i dont think thats the right cooler. i mean technically it will fit, but the one you should have gotten is the one specifically for the 7970. see the below pics.

the one you have:
274

the one you should have gotten:
339

and they were doing it just because they didnt want to use the shim? and technically taking the stock heatsink off of the card voids MOST manufacture warentteees

why do people remove the ihs from cpu's? is that equally as "stupid"?

this is VERY good advice..killed a 5780 like that..if the ramsinks conflict..use thermal tape

On a new, close to $600 dollar card? Yeah, I love modding but this is just common sense. The thing about taking the stock heatsink off is you can put it back on and it'll look like it did when it left the factory. Modding is great, but using the right tools for the job is just smart.
