    Please can someone tell me that is it also neccesary to cool the signed parts (picture attached)? If so what do you recommend as it seems they dont line up perfectly with the surface of the heatsink.Thanks!

    Yes! Use that heat conductive 'foam tape'

    Beside the signed component on the picture (+GPU and memory chips), is there anything that needs cooling? Thank you.

    If you mean besides the CPU and the memory chips, no... I was looking at some pictures from when I took one of my donor 8730ws apart and see no other places where foam heat tapes are used... Unfortunately I have no pictures of a heat sink with the tape installed.

    Since the heat sink covers the whole surface of the card, I don't see any harm using more foam tape if you can as it's compressible, as long as it doesn't interfere with GPU and memory heat sink contact.
