yeah, it cools the core quite well. I'm hitting 53*C @ 875/1912/880 and a Hyper 15mmx80mmx80mm fan. I can't help but think the heat pipes mess with the cooling on two gmem chips; I see that affecting gmem oc. I have to cut up some mosfet heatsinks to hit tight spots, it can't hurt
Scrizz, did you do a solder v-mod, if so do you have a pick?
