is it absolutley necessary to have GPU memory bank heatsink?
my watercooling system came in and i got a GPU waterblock.... it totally escaped me to get some memory heatsinks for my card. i have a geforce 7800 gt. of course, i need to replace my current heatsink, and i think that the stock heatsink has some memory heatsinks built onto it.
edit: hmm also, all of my screwdrivers that i own are slightly magnitized. is that bad to take off the heatsink on my GPU with?

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)
