Sigh...I did the heat mod with foil, but i could only get my gpu up to 380 and ram up to 324...Is foil really that bad?

|3) Metal Plates. (I used aluminum, you can use copper or any other kinds)|
|No metal pads is used for the GPU's core here because theres not enough room to stick a thick pad of copper or anything on the video card. There is a way to put a very thin piece of metal plate or foil on it but I haven't tried it yet.|
