MSI Twin Frozr III 6950 OC Tips - Page 3

post #21 of 24
piss- I'm in sydney, idle @ 40+C not 51C, most likely you need to reseat the heatsink. but how is the airflow in the case? you need to get some kind of push (front) and pull(back) fan setup. most of the warm air are being throwing around inside the case due to TWIN frozor design.

my typical airflow set up

When two or more monitors are connected, the idle 2D clocks are slightly higher @450/1300 for stability. With one monitor the idle 2D is lower than 450/1300 hence the lower idle temperature.

The 3D clocks full load temps are a bit high. Reapply and reseat the cooler should lower it.

What would the process for reseating/reapplying the cooler be? Obviously getting some thermal compound would be a good first point of call, but what is the process for removing the cooler, approximately?

Get MX-3 or MX-4 thermal paste is doing decently well for temperature.

This video will give you the idea.
