Hi, I recieved my package from Newegg containing the 6600GT and VM-101 today, and am a bit confused. There is a large fan/heatsink thing which I thought at first covered the GPU, and a heatsink on the side that I had no idea what for. This might seem noobish, but is the GPU under the small heatsink? I've included a picture to help clarify...
Is the GPU under the heatsink marked "1", or is it under the large fan/heatsink combo?
If I'm correct in that the heatsink is covering the GPU, then I need to remove both that and the fan/heatsink thing to install the VM-101. Is this a good idea? I'm assuming the fan and heatsinks are there to keep the RAM cool, but I don't see any other way to install the VM-101 without taking it off. I've read in other posts that people have been able to get the VM-101 onto their 6600GTs. Did they just go without the fan/heatsink thing?
I'm also having a ridiculously hard time [read: unsuccesful] at getting those black little "screw" things holding the fan and heatsink to the board. Is there a easy way to get them out without destroying them?
Thx for any help!
