TIM Replacement on GTX 460 EE

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I will be ordering some MX-4 very soon to apply to this stupid card. When applying, I hear people put pea-sized amounts on the chip itself, while others use the credit card method and make a line across one side and smooth it across so there is a thin sheet covering it.

Should I follow this method?

What are your opinions on what I should do?

I always use the credit card method, just to peace of mind.

Okay. It sounds like that method would work better. I just don't want my temps getting higher. Most games are around 95C with 100% fan speed. On a cold day its around 89-94C. Folding right now on the card, its 85C. I would like to not have to have this thing on 100% when I play or fold because it's tooooo loud!

^someone from EVGA forums took apart the 460EE

BTW, I have the exact same card (460EE) and mine never reaches those temps... it has never even gone to 100%fan speed.

Awesome just what I was looking for +1 to you! wink.gif

Well I guess they made faulty batches that weren't properly seated and what not. Mine must be one of them.
