    better safe than sorry.

    maybe it is safe not to sink them because they are now in open air where as with the stock sink they wouldn't be.
    Hey thanks, I see that and just found the thread where he showed the finished cooler mod. Pic below ...

    Yes, as Brandito stated, I did add those other sinks (again, thanks to Brandito for pointing out the need to do so). When I get a chance, I'll post a pic of my card with those sinks on there.

    Already posted a pic Marty. It's right above your last post. I also hope you don't mind, I borrowed that pic of yours and used it right here in another thread regarding cooling a GTS 512MB. Just wanted to show him what the card would look like after the VRMS were covered with Ramsinks.
