Sapphire 5830 Thermal paste question?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have my sapphire 5830 and its core clock is 1010 with 1.3v vcore and it reaches temps of about 83C and was wondering if I could put some AS5 on gpu and maybe reduce my temps? I heard you shouldn't put AS5 on it because its conductive and can someone help me with the process of doing this on a GPU(Done this multiple times on a CPU) and is it any different?
Please and thanks.

AS5 conducts electricity?? thats new to me. ive got that on the digital mosfets on my board and i can guarantee that it will have contacted the pins on them and its fine. so no i really dont think AS5 conducts electricity. really its all the same as a CPU, take the block off, clean the contacts and reapply the paste then rebuild.
