Okay, so did you cover multiple IC at once with the heat sinks? That would answer pretty much all of my questions quite directly.
There weren't any heat sinks there before, I guess it's just a game to me- to attempt cooling my card as best as possible.
Yes I did; there were several ICs which were close enough together to use a single heat sink on (ie 2 ICs to 1 heat sink)
My GPU went from idling at 50*C and gaming at 80*C to idle at 30-35*C depending on ambient, and less than 50*C on average when gaming with a hefty OC.
