Modern GPUS can operate properly within 100c (core temp) safely.

Taking the video card apart for a measly 5c (if that) isn't worth the trouble (potentially damaging on-board components).

So please, if anyone is reading this.
Don't replace the stock TIM unless you are changing the cooler.

Ok, everyone has their own opinion on things.
You feel that it isn't good to take an unnecessary risk changing the tim on a card, unless you have to, such as if you are changing the cooler.
Certainly, that advise is safe, and will avoid any potential issues that could arise from doing it incorrectly.

But, like it or not, people do change the tim on their cards. Whether they are doing it to fix a sloppy factory application, or wanting a better quality tim, testing temperature results with different tim's, different application methods, the possibilities are many.

The "lol" guy I pictured is to say that I wouldn't try to tell people not to do this, it's their choice. I've been changing the tim on gpu's for so long that it's second nature now.

I certainly wouldn't tell someone to change the tim if they were not wanting to do so either, it works both ways.

It was really a more of a recommendation.

Gpu manufacturers tend go glob the TIM on, well that's been my impression so far on all the gpu's I've owned. Any fool can do it.

I want to emphasize that, even though our opinions on that may differ, to me it's a friendly arguement.
And I don't totally disagree with you either.
My lol cartoon was meant in jest, not to be taken seriously (not that the crazy drawing could be)

After having given it some more thought, I like the fact that you are advising people not to unnecessarily replace their tim. It's better to be safe than sorry. And certainly that could result in something going wrong.

So it's good advise that you are giving
Rep+ for you.
