    I finally got the time to install the TT Duorb on my 8800 GTS 512 and i wanted to ask a couple of questions. The Orb comes with 13 aluminum heatsinks and 4 VRM heatsinks pictured here:

    The manual really sucks and it doesn't tell exactly where they need to go. I figure that the 8 aluminum heatsinks should go on the 8 black squares surrounding the GPU:

    What i don't know is where to put the 4 VRM heatsinks and the rest of the aluminum heatsinks.I haven't yet cleaned off thr stock thermal compound thats why the GPU looks like crap. Anyway, can someone tell me where the rest need to go?

    Nice find, however that's a 8800 GTS G80, mine is G92 so thr layout is somewhat different. But it did give me an idea, I'm gonna put the 3 square heatsinks to the spot marked in blue on the pic below and put 1 VRM heatsink to the spot marked in red:

    What you think? Good idea?

    Be sure to clean the goo off all those resistors and keep it on the chip! You may want to work with the heatsinks before taking the backing off to make sure you have clearance.
