    It to be install for VRM when you are doing serious sub zero cooling. Other than that you do not need it.

    That answers the 'when' it would be installed - still does not answer the 'where".

    As I said to be fix it to gfx VRM. You dismantle the fan and heatsink in order to see it.
    Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

    I doubt the HD7950 TOP would have the same PCB as the Matrix has!!!

    That is not important, better than opening useless new thread. If you don't have anything to say, do something else.

    OP has 7970 DirectCU II, no-one was talking about Matrix here. Please, do some reading before posting.

    7950 TOP v2 (but only v2) which I have has same PCB as that card. So, if anyone has that heatsink I would like to buy it for some reasonable price.
