    Image of the heatsink has been horizontally flipped so you can make a 1:1 comparison with the card.

    Red = remove
    Green = slightly grind down

    Think I got that right? Also what kind of rotary tool do you think is best?

    Will keep you updated Tim4 ! Shouldn't be a hassle at all to install these monsters in our MSIs.

    Cool, I'll make sure to take pics of the final mods too.

    At the top right I may try and just grind that down to meet the inductor.

    Once I get the 7970M working, I should be able to take power measurements too.

    Is the shape of the GPU going to cause problems? the contact for the heatsink looks like it wont cover the entire chip...

    It will, Meaker hasn't taken off the black rectangular shape tape on his heatsink.
