Aftermarket GPU cooler installation

Hi everyone,

 

I bought the Accelero Xtreme III from Arctic to cool my MSI 1080 Aero.

 

It includes these small heatsinks to cool the RAM and VRMs, but I am unsure exactly which chips need them.

 

This is the GPU

 

I know I need to cool the RAM (red).

I am not sure about the green ones (capacitors?). It seems when I use image search that some people cool them and some don't.

The yellow ones are the mosfets? These need cooling I assume?

Then there are the blue ones which are capacitors for voltage control or something?

 

I talked to customer support and they said to definitely not use them on the chips marked in blue and yellow, but if the yellow ones are mosfets (are they?) they need cooling, right?

 

Thank you

Anything the stock cooler touches, should be cooled.
