Yeah, it's mostly for aesthetics, I think it'd look cool.That being said, I'll probably try a 1.85v OC with this RAM and see how it goes, I wouldn't go that high without watercooling them.Thanks for the info re/pads
Thanks! I used some leftover on my laptop in place of some MX-4, and it's dropped my laptops CPU temp about 20 degrees, this stuff is insane.I don't get how it's better than some paste, but it is.Did my PS3 too because the fan was getting loud and now it never spins up as fast as it did (not getting as hot).Like yours, it seems the temps have improved with time;I dropped the clocks back to stock because the card wasn't having any trouble running anything at max FPS with...
Finally got my pad and installed my Sapphire Tri-OC card. I stuck some extra between the backplate and the ram chips (it already has you put some over the back of the VRMs and core, so I used the fujipoly stuff over what they bundled with it) Using MSI Afterburner I put the power limit up to 50%, core clock 1110(110 increase), memory 1300 to 1400. Played some Hawken for an hour on max settings at 1920x1080, and the average core temp of the card averaged 51.8c, the VRMs...
Thanks, I was worried about stacking them not working as well because I couldn't alter my order before it had shipped, and it's coming US->UK so it would have been a pain to have to spend more on shipping.
You sure that'll be fine, the stack them? are they just like a putty rolled flat? I guess I had this image of them having a sort of structure to them with the outer sides being different to the interior, but I guess at 0.5mm height that would be pretty hard to do, so it must just be like a putty substance - the only problem I can see is getting bubbles trapped when layering them, I guess if I get any I can't push out without deforming the pad I could use a needle to poke a...
Thanks for the info! Could I use the Fujipoly thermal pads cut to size instead of the ones the block ships with? I've got some 0.5mm tall 17 Kw/H coming, I have been told you can stack it if it's not thick enough so should be a good improvement right?
I expected to have to remove all of the stock heat spreader stuff from the sticks. To check before I buy, I want these, correct? http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC-253-EK&groupid=962&catid=2201 x 1 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC-326-EK&groupid=962&catid=2201 x 2 I know the block covers 4 sticks and I only have two, but future proofing etc - there won't be any installation issues with just two sticks and the 4x block will...
The 60x50 size was out of stock so I just went ahead and bought the 200 x 150 x 0.5 - 17.0 W/mK pack. Should do my R9 290 and motherboard mosfets/southbridge heatsinks with a lot to spare. I guess I could even do my laptop and PS3. What's the final consensus if there is one on whether or not to use TIM with it? I've got some MX-4 I've had for about a year still in the tube which I'm going to use when I reseat the CPU and for the chip on the GPU, unless anyone can...
My WC loop is pretty excessive for cooling what it is, so I was thinking I might get some ram blocks to make more use of it, give the 1.85v overclock a try. This is the ram: G.Skill 2x4GB DDR3 2666MHz TridentX Memory All my current blocks are EK acetal+nickel, if that matters. I've never looked at ram blocks before so I'm not even sure if they're all universal or what. I'm guessing maybe all DDR3 blocks might fit any DDR3 stick and so on. Thanks in advance.
I see, but in general I've been told it is pretty excessive anyway.
