280x toxic cooling, what component on card requires heat sinks

Hey guys I have a r9 280x toxic, a non-reference board, and I plan on cooling it with a water cooler mounted on a kraken g10. But doing this would mean I would need to purchase heat sinks for the card to keep the temperatures low. Now I am not sure specifically which components on the card I would have to add heat sinks on, I believe that the ones I boxed with red should have heat sinks on.Should I add heat sinks on the ones I boxed in yellow as well and am I missing any others. If anyone can help me out that would be awesome! Picture ---> http://imgur.com/a/9T23I

  1. You got it pretty much covered, you CAN add to the yellow ones, but if you don't have enough heatsinks at the moment, it won't kill you.
  2. also directly to the right of the furthest right red ones, there are some additional vrms that look like they don't have heatsinks that you can and should add to

    Yessir! you got it. if you can't find heatsinks small enough, just put one heatsink over two of them. Also make sure the kraken g10 will fit with everything installed (use a thermal paste mixed with a thermal adhesive for best results)
  5. Awesome thanks so much for your help Brantyn!

    Did you already modify your card? Do you have a picture? I'm thinking about putting water cooler block on it, too.
