Thats one of Tin's mods IIRC is adding those.

I wonder if by itself it would help. I think the evga card with the waterblock adds that 5th vrm too?

PS - Great review Mattno!

I thought Tin's mods just completely bypassed those all together?

As for the EVGA hydro copper cards having a fifth VRM I would gladly accept one being sent my way to see
