the best thing to do as far as i know is using taking apart the stock heat sink and fan that came with the card and using the bottom plate that covers all the ram and vrm's... that cooler will still fit and the temps will be under control

You're doing it wrong. 3 heatsinks on the VRMs, not 2.

As for the memory issue, just try and get as much contact as possible, it shouldn't matter too much as long as it is on there. I saw a post where somebody actually filed down half of the fins so that it would fit.
