8800gt and zalman vf-1000 (old stuff I know :)) - Page 2

Thanks for the help. I have ordered all the parts so now I am just waiting for everything I need to come in.

I just gotta ask one more thing, because I don't want another card to die on me biggrin.gif. Kinda anal perhaps but I just want to be sure.

No heatsink

Does that little spot, where the chip is sticking out ever so slightly, matter at all? My instinct tells me I should be fine but again, just wanna be sure. smile.gif

I'm afraid I don't understand your question. Which chip specifically?

Well, if you don't see it then it probably doesn't matter.

I was talking about this:

Oh, I see now. If you want - slide it over and throw another heatsink. Just run the card and if it is warm to the touch then I'd consider another heatsink.

Alright, everything was assembled and the temps look good! 43 Celsius idle and 55 degrees high on Crysis 2. I may have messed up a bit with the ceramique, that is, I may have put more than recommended but with these temps I don't see why I should be worried, right? (I shouldn't, riiight? ) Thank you for all your help JARG.

For others viewing this thread, these are the instructions I used.

You shouldn't be worried if you used a little extra. Ceramique will not conduct electricity so you're golden.

You're certainly welcome .

I was more concerned with the thermal conductivity. From what I understood, if you use too much it becomes more of an insulator than a conductor.

Yes, and you can clean it / reseat the cooler if you're concerned. I'm not familiar with what temps you should be getting so...experiment!

I think those temps are great for the core, and I'd think the memory chips are fine too seeing that I am not getting any artifacting in games. Sooo, how do I find out if the voltage regulators are doing alright? Wait until my GPU cooks? There doesn't seem to be any reference being sent to GPU-Z which probably has to do with the fact that this is a Dell computer and all information available to the user is very limited.
