There are *wide* heatsinks having modest height (<1cm).Thanks! Do you think small heatsinks are better or larger ones? Bit difficult to fit the larger ones on cards packed 2 slots apart.
That shouldn't happen. Even if the vram hits 110C, it just throttles down. Nothing will crash.Curiously I've had my Turbo crash my entire system (full power off with no ability to power on again) twice when mem temps stayed at 100C for more than 30 mins. Would need to let it rest for a couple of mins before it worked again. Core temps were just 56C. Keeping the mem temps 2C lower at 98C eliminates the problem entirely for some strange reason.
Maybe it's just a coincidence: have you connected the GPU to two different power outlets on the psu? One is not supposed to daisy-chain the 8-pin connectors.
