So i just bought some small Zalman VGA ram heatsinks and it told me to put it on top and bottom of the graphics card ram heatsink. Just to make sure before i put it on the top and bottom of the graphics card i wanted to make sure if its electricity conductive or not. My graphics card is nvidia geforce gtx 560ti direct cu ii top. Also how much heat can a gpu ram take? When im playing games like bf3 i get temps up to 146 F and when i touch on top of the ram on the gpu and it was burning hot.

They get hot, but your 64 degrees celsius (146F) is nothing to worry about.

And yes, they are aluminum thereby making them VERY electrically conductive.

No i mean like if the thermal tape on it is electricity conductive

The thermal tape is insulative.

I don't understand you.... so is that electricity conductive or it isn't? On the top of the vga ram there's metal parts and im scared that if i put the thermal tape on there with the heat sink it will be a short circuit.

The thermal tape transfers heat, not electricity
