I just purchased a arctic cooling accelero xtreme plus for my gigabyte hd 6850. Little did I realize but the cooler dose not come with the little Vram heat-sinks. I know this sounds very odd but could I use canadian penny copper penny's as heatsinks LOL!! or my other alternative would be the stock thermal pads for the vram..... dose the vram get that hot? I have the card overclocked to 910mhz gpu clock, 1165mhz memory clock. The card idles at 33C in CCC.
Is it even nessesary to have a heatsink on the vram can I run without it The cooler has 3 80mm fan that would be blowing straight down onto the card??
