could someone point them out.. I have a p965 ds3 mobo

I marked all the mofets I could see... donno what ones that would need cooling.. trying to find the best heatsink to use.. that I can buy from nicx Canada

[img=http://img108.imagevenue.com/loc1067/th_19340_board_big_mofets_122_1067lo.dib]

I circled them and I am not sure if I should cool #'s 1, 2 and 7... Im pretty sure I should cool 3, 4, 5 and 6 areas.. ?

I have to chose from the cooper memory sinks or the aluminum 8800 series mosfets sinks form this picture.. I figure the cooper woould be harder to stick since they weight more and I dont see my mofets really heating up the sticky tape.

I want to use the black aluminum heatsinks.. but I will have to cut them to fit the line of four mofets #3 circled in my picture. mainly I need to know which mofets I should cool lol :p tired... getting watercooling in the mail soon and trying to get the other stuffs I need ordered from ncix.com.

Oo woo ty lol is that the only one I really need to cool? cause Im going to bump up my fsb voltage prob and I'll be overclocking my 8800. I have good case cooling. :)

Edit: LOL way over there EH! I dident even see it! lol cool:cool: that ones a bit bigger so one of the copper sinks should fit on that one perfectly.. than I'll only have 8 left lol.. guess I will have some spare quick fixes if one of the ones on my card fall off lol (I hope they stick well.. I dont weant to do any funny stuffs, I just want them to stick right out the package. :) )


Edit: I only need to colthe cpu voltage regulator :) to bad the bammed swifttech sinks will cost me 25$ added on to my cart.. 25$ to cool a dammed vreg lol I thkn I will cut my stock 1900gt's cooler up!
