ATI Voltage Regulator Risk of Short Circuit
I recently installed an Accelero 7970 Cooler. At the time I received the cooler directly from the manufacturer I had no installation manual at hand. So I missed to use a stripe of insulation tape against a certain component row nearthe voltage regulators of the HD 7970.
I linked a picture to help explain my worries in more detail.
The area marked with the red rectangle shows that the voltage regulator cooler touches the grey components in the left side.
This "grey components" which I can not name because I don't know the components name has a solder joint towards the aluminium cooler.
The cooler and the solder joints touch.
The card runs without any problems so my question is does anyone know if this can do harm to the equipment?
I am asking because I am bit lazy to take off the cooler again and the glued coolers. The picture you see is not my card it is taken form the web.
