GPU Die Height for AMD Cards

Hey all,

Today I am going to talk about the AMD GPU die height and why you might need a shim, with certain AMD cards like the 7970, 7950, and the 290x.  What you are looking for is a recessed GPU die and this is what I am talking about.



Anytime you see this, Where the GPU processor is encased, you will need to use this EK shim.  The reason why this is needed is because the cooler plate for any AIO unit, will not touch the GPU processor.  That is a must in order to properly cool down the GPU.
