Worse temps replacing TIM on Twin Frozr GTX 570 - Page 2

Exactly my thoughts. When I removed the stock TIM, there was a crapload and I thought to myself I could def. get better temps if I used less.

Refer to the middle of this thread - there are some pics of how much stock TIM was on there by default:

http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/1121153-quick-gtx-570-question.html

If I used the dot method, I'd have to put a very big dot as there is A LOT of area to cover.

I'm pretty sure the contact is tight because when I took it apart to apply it a 2nd time, it was a bit difficult to separate the heatsink from the card.

Is there such a thing as maybe compatibility issues with specific pastes / GPU bases?

I think my temps were alright for 900/2100 overclock @ 1.1v, just that there is a big difference in sound between 50% fan speed and 60%. I just wanted to keep it under 60s.

Try a rice sized dot you would be surprised at what it can cover.
If i rise sized dot can cover a whole cpu then it will work with a gpu.

I mean I use a tiny dot on my CPU but the surface area on the GPU just seems so much larger. That's why I felt like spreading it evenly was the only way to get it all across.

I can definitely try the dot method sometime this week. If anything, I'm waiting on more Arcticlean to come in and I'll post back with results.

Thanks everyone!

I tried small dot, same as I always do with cpu's and gpu's and got horrible temps. Tried again with bigger dot, slightly better temps but still bad compared to stock. Then I slapped the LN2 pot on the card and stopped worrying about stock cooler.

when I replace TIM on a GPU.. I for one use OCZ Freeze.. love that stuff.. anyway, I spread a square from center to about 1/2 way around the GPU. Once contact is made, try not to move the cooler up and down. Thats when air bubbles can become a problem. I like to tighten and twist. tighten 2 corners, twist the cooler with downward force and tighten the rest of the way. 1/2 chip spread will cover 100% with a scim coat layer. And always , always , always replace all the thermal pads at the time you are reseating the GPU cooler.

Put a small amount in the middle, play some games to get the TIM to heat up and spread. If you still have bad temps, pull the cooler off and see how it spread. Should only take you 2, max 3 tries to get it right.

Now the highest I get is 64, which is just 1 off from the highest temp I was getting on the stock TIM. This is 2 days after I replaced the TIM for the 2nd time.

First time I did it, I replaced it on the same day because I thought I would notice the temp difference right away. In any case I'm still going to try the dot method and wait a day or two to see how it comes along.

There are a lot of factor that effect this. Sometimes after a BF3 game my max temps is 65, sometimes 63, sometimes 68C.
