Shin-Etsu G-751 for 6950?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Tomorrow I'll be tearing down my rig and installing a new motherboard (ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3), so I figured it would be a good time to replace the thermal compound on my 6950s. I've got some Shin-Etsu G-751 here that I've been using on my CPUs and then some of this Thermalright Chill Factor that came with my Cogage Arrow, which I've never used.

Is the G-751 suitable for my 6950s? Is it worth changing?

I had a gtx 460 twin frozr with an excellent shin etsu TIM job. It idled at near ambient and was the coolest/quietest card ive ever owned, I attribute half of that to the excellent little card, but the shin etsu made a huge difference, go for it I say!

I went through a whole tube of it trying to replace my 6970 lightning. It would never spread right no matter what. Tried a different way every time and it would never get gpu temps 2 and 3 down from around 90c-100c even when it was globed on.

After I ran out, bought some IC Diamond 7. 1 application and everything is within 10c of each other with awesome temps. Maybe it's just the lightning cooler, didn't want to spread right, or I'm just terrible at applying tim.

I guess it worth trying to see if you can save a few degrees for a better overclock, and hopefully it works a lot better for than me. It's non-conductive and non-capacitive so its fine for a gpu but its kinda thick and it would not spread for me.

Thanks guys! I also find it hard to apply, but usually a beer or two while applying helps the nerves out.
