hahaha! Wouldn't say almost tore off the RAM module hard but definitely more than a little effort, they weren't easy. Put it this way, I've had the Arctic Cooler on my 480 for close to a year and had no problems with the heatsinks falling off. Stress tested quite a few times to so I think that thermal tape works great. I know a couple people that use it also and they say the same thing.

well my computer started crashing a lot the last few days and i found that my video card was overheating (105C) so i took it apart and thought my 620 was going bad so i put another cooler (h50 with res i have) on there and it is still overheating. could my card be going bad? i have tried to change the drivers, used different paste, even swapped into a bigger case with more airflow and still i am crashing. this is making me sad since my card doesn't have any warranty left on it frown.gif

first things first put the original cooler back on and try your temps again, putting the card back to stock as crappy as that is should be the first step.

Are you sure the H50 works? The card might have a temperature sensor problem causing the crashes, but that seems unlikely to just appear all of a sudden.
post #1836 of 8622
well i know its not the sensor since i just about lost skin when i touched the card and i can see the water flowing in my res with the h50 so i know that works. i have just reseated the card again and still its getting hot. i have no idea whats going on here.

Are you using Dwood's bracket? Also, what TIM are you using?
post #1838 of 8622
yeah, dwoods bracket with fan mount, tried nztx paste, cooler master and just now some ocz freeze and nothing is helping. i took the rad out of the case and set it on the AC vent so its getting super cold air and its still heating up to 95~100C within 3 seconds of heaven. all clocks are stock, no over volt and i have now tried 3 different drivers. i cant change much else other than the card.

Are you tightening it enough? The only other thing I could possibly think of is taking the GPU heat spreader off, but this is probably a terrible idea.

i had thought about that also but i really hate to do it. if i cant get this worked out though it might be the next step. i know its tight, it doesnt move and i could probally pick the computer up by the h50 its on there so tight. its really started to make me made. only game i can currently play is diablo 3 because its the only thing that doesnt make me over heat frown.gif
