Hello, i am about to order a thermalright shaman to install on my GTX570. I think the shaman will fit the card without having to remove the stock VRM and memory heatsink and my question is would this provide a better cooling option?
Below is a copy of the card with stock heatsink removed but vrm and memory heatsink still installed, obviously i would remove the fan!

Also with everything off.

Sometimes the VRM heatsinks arnt the best on aftermarket coolers so i am thinking if i leave the stock memory and vrm heatsink on, there is a much larger area connected to the memory and vrm's and with a 140mm fan blowing on the black heatsink will it actually cooler better this way?

Go for it!

Try it out and report back :)

If the Shaman fits, the original cooling plate should definitely help and I've had nothing but heartache with sticky-tape heatsinks. Especially the ones for the VRMs seem to always fall of (various Arctic Cooling Accelero experiences).
