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. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14971/ex-blc-1051/EK-VGA_Supreme_HF_HD7970_Cu_Adapter.html  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.
