So I was wondering, the G1 Gaming, and several other 970s have a few Memory ICs on the back. How in the hell are these cooled? I don't believe passive is enough. The G1's backplate has no thermal pads to make contact with the backplate (quite stupid imo on gigabyte's part). Even the cheapest Zotac 970 has a proper cooler where the thermal pads make contact with the heatsink and all memory ICs are on 1 side.
