Well I meant I didn't know if there was much clearance between the VRMs and the G10. AFAIK there's nothing making contact on the VRMs? Just the fan above it? Copper heatsinks will definitely cut down the temps a bit if that's the case. I'm no expert and don't want to say anything horribly wrong but I believe they provide more surface area for the heat to dissipate and that lets the fan cool it off more effectively.

Take a look at this. Take into account that you have a single GPU card. The point is that the G10 only effectively cools the GPU core/die and not the VRMs or any other components.

this review shows how hot the vrms and voltage regulators will get. these are on the back of the card. you mostly have to worry about the vrms not being cooled by the fan, which would be on the other side opposite the fan, and on the back side of the card where the open pcb is. keep in mind putting on the heatsinks will ruin the chances of putting the stock cooler back on. once the heatsinks go on they wont come off

Yeah, I thought that image might be a bit old. I wish I could go full WC, but I am stuck on air for now.
