^ this, and also did you mix the compounds at a 1:1 ratio?
post #402 of 8616
no I mixed the compound as 4:1 ratio as per the instructions on the tube.

Even if I would have put the copper sinks on then put the gpu back in my case they would have still fallen off. Maybe I need to leave it for hours to set.

only thing you really can do now aside from buying new thermal adhesive.

That would be best

electrical traces, pins and leads...doesnt thta mean it could damage components on gpu?

Arctic Alumina Adhesive is a pure electrical insulator, neither electrically conductive nor capacitive.
That's what I'm would use instead.

update : I just got 560ti 448 FTW's 2 days ago and did the same mod to them. Now I need a better power supply to OC them like they want to be, but jeez, this mod is awesome. It was even easier on the 560ti's than the 460's. The metal heat shield on the 560's is just so nice to mount everything to, and then just screw it all back on the card. I love OCN for so many reasons smile.gifthumb.gif

I am getting around 30 ~ 31C idle and after 10 minutes of furmark around 58C ~61 peak @ stock clocks on my EVGA GTX465 (Flashed to 470). is this normal? the fan is still around 40% and Its still pretty quite and I know I could probably reset the kuhler and re do the TIM and maybe shave a couple of degrees here and there but dont really want to bother tongue.gif before on furmark I would get 90-95C @ stock clocks w/ 75% fan rolleyes.gif

What about the size of those Enzotech heatsinks? Do they cover the whole ram chips? How many sets did you buy? Looking at the pictures it seems that you need two sets for each card (8 for vram, others for vrms)
