If it came off easy then that's your issue. Be sure to get some before/after temps recorded! You'll be amazed if you get to run a 620 right on the die of your card. It'll be sooo cool! Just make sure you use a thin viscosity paste! Thick pastes like ceramique tend to build a layer between the two surfaces.

The OEM Cooler Master thermal paste is actually quite good. It is better than OCZ Freeze in my experience. I am using it on my 570 and my CPU right now. wink.gif

Odd the power supply would be spinning up and you'd actually hear that... Dual 470's would be pushin the PSU though...I think...

Ya I can, when I only had 1 card I had it running from the Molex. The pumps are running full though from the sound of them and the temp readings. I think I need to get another adapter though, and hide these ugly cables thumb.gif

Well I used that PSU Calculator tool http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine and with some guess work I am at the recommended PSU ~740W is recommended. I think my PSU is ok. I used 90% load with 10% capacitor aging. I might think about looking at a 900W PSU though.
I need to get myself a KillaWatt.

Duel 470s won't really push the PSU that hard; those power calculators generally give you readings that are much higher than the actual power consumption. Here's the actual power consumption in practice:

Ya that is my thought, the PSU fan must be a little aggressive then. This is the most juice I have asked of it, the box gets slightly warm but the airflow is still cool, so I know I am not pushing it past its' rating. I don't think it is any other fan, but I could be wrong. All the temps are below 60'c (CPU, GPU 1, GPU 2). thinking.gif

Buy a really loud fan to drown out the noise from the power supply.
