ya haha...apparently the 570 vanilla vrm's aren't that sturdy. mmk ya idk much about the 480, but if the vrm's are good, then u should be safe with a moderate overclock on stock cooler.

totally same story man... tongue.gif oh another good way to feel more comfortable pulling apart graphics cards is to get some dead cards from ppl, and have at it biggrin.gif

What would you define as a moderate overclock? Anyone think my card could survive 1138mV with stock VRM cooling at 70% fan? My core temps are fine with with the mod at least.

i'm not quite sure, given i don't know much about 480's
what is your current core/mem clock?

At 1138 mV I can get 850 MHz, and I left the memory stock.

Three questions I cant find the answer too.

1) How much tim should I use.
2) How should I apply it (pea or line?)
3) How tight should I tighten the screws

Three important things that I think should be added to the first post.

I couldn't find any good ones. You don't really need a video if you are going to be using the bracket.

Here are the steps:
1. put 4 screws through the bracket in the right holes
2. put the 4 screws through the holes on the graphics card PCB
3. put a washer, then a nut on the end of the screws; do not tighten these yet
4. lift the bracket and put the pump through it, then twist it, so it is under the bracket
5. tighten the nuts on the other side in an x pattern; tighten them fairly hard, but don't overdo it.

If you follow these steps, you will be fine. It's pretty foolproof. The only way you could screw this up is to tighten the nuts way too hard or not enough, but if you don't do it hard enough, you can tell and fix it pretty easily.

Use the stock TIM on the cooler if possible. Otherwise, put enough to cover the entire surface, which I believe would be about the size of a BB (4.5mm in diameter).
I would apply it in the pea method.
Tighten the screws fairly hard, but don't put any muscle into it. I tightened mine with a mini socket wrench, and I tightened it as hard as I could with two fingers.

I used about 1-1/2 to 2 grains of rice worth, then spread with a credit card into an even layer. I didn't get one of Dwood's brackets so not sure about tension, you definitely don't want to over-tighten things, I'm sure.
