    Those are the VRMs that need to be cooled.

    The priority in cooling a high-end GPU goes like this:
    1. GPU Core
    2. VRMs
    3. Memory

    Glad to know you're keeping an eye out for the VRMs! And welcome to TPU if you haven't already been welcomed! :toast:

    What about the 2 to the right of the memory on the bottom?

    Those two are probably for the ram and don't pull much current but if you have the extra heatsinks go for it:) I use a IR pen and check temps of chips and see whats kick out the heat.
