Well I have been running Arctic Silver for about a year on it and have had no problems. I'm weary about using Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra cause it has lots of metal in it. I think gallium.

well AS5 is no better then liquid ultra i assure you the particles are still there, and as5 is probably just as risky so I am sure you can use either one and wont see any different results... you should just get some MX-4 its not like thermal compound is expensive:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ARCTIC-COOLING-MX-4-Thermal-Compound-ARCTIC-MX-4-/380400542190?pt=US_Thermal_Compounds_Supplies&hash=item5891a3a1ee

8 year life-time, non capacitive and no cure time. for $7.25 shipped throw away the AS5 and the Liquid Ultra

Or if ur cheap like me get mx-2 for around 5 bucks still 8 year and good product or a big tube for same price as mx-4

yea I was considering using liquid ultra on my 7950 but the little things all around the die are way too close for comfort. I decided to use noctua nt-h1 instead (non conductive)

Liquid Ultra kicks all the other tim's asses though...but I still think it's a little too risky if you apply it wrong. If you're confident you can get away with it since it's not like other tims, it stays where you apply it since it only sticks to the metal and very smooth die surface, kinda like mercury. Not squishy like regular paste tongue.gif

I agree ultra is not like other pastes it is more like nail polish in its application. You brush it on the die only and you could litterally swing/shake your gpu around and it should not move providing you did a nail polish like coat and not a glop like you would do with arctic silver or other pastes. Plenty of pictures of what proper application on a cpu looks like in the delidded thread. Personally i would not be worried one bit about going that route.

Liquid ultra is on both my GPUs with no issue.

Anyone notice how good the fcat analysis have been in recent reviews of the 7990? It looks to be wiping the floor with the 690 in both framerate and frametime in most top titles.. Pretty happy with the way amd has worked on drivers this year. Hopefully they keep on striving for improvement.

Hi there, can I know which one is VRM1 or VRM2 on reference 7970?
