On Radeon 7970, 7950 and R9 280X graphic cards the GPU is surrounded by slightly higher frame. This prevents GPU-only coolers from contacting the GPU. Heat transfer becomes almost impossible and powering up such a combination is strictly not recommended.
The “79X0/R9 280X GPU spacer for GPU-only coolers” solves this problem. It fills the gap between cooler and GPU and ensures optimal heat transfer. Thermal grease (not included) has to be used on both sides.
The spacer may only be used with GPU-only coolers (e.g. HEATKILLER® GPU-X³ Core). Full cover coolers feature a matched GPU contact area.
