    Hi there,

    I just got an accelero twin turbo aftermarket cooler for my Sapphire HD4870 512Mb (non-reference layout).

    Here's the card layout : SAPPHIRE HD4870

    4 VRMs heatsinks are included but as I'm not a specialist, I'm not really sure where to put them exactly (the VRM heatsinks can be seen on the right side of this picture and on this one)

    The RAM heatsinks are pretty obvious to install, but could someone who knows what he's doing/saying give me advice on where exactly to put the 4 VRM heatsinks ?

    Thank you.

    Thank you very much, I thought these would be the places to put them on, so I did it yesterday. I had to use my dremmel (cutting tool) to shape the heatsinks for the upper-right part on the picture. As I wasn't sure, I also put one heatsink on the bottom-right ones :rolleyes:

    My Accelero Twin Turbo is set, I now have to deal with temperatures after installation, but as it is another subject, I'll create a new post.

    Thanks again for your answer.
