So you get a signal with the shim n none without. As I said don't do it so tight.
Tighten then up with your fingers
As I said I over tightened mine n got the same errors.

I've got the same heatsinks for my rams but got a gelid vrm cooler on my vrms

Could someone post a picture of just how much thermal paste to use? I feel like it's kind of a crucial part of the process and I just want to make sure I did it right. I didn't spread it out either. I just let the shim spread it out.

Let the paste settle in n some new fans n you'll be good.
I have a gelid vrm cooler on my vrms and it works a treat

What you have is a obvious case of cold solder, I have seen this alot usually with on-board VGA dies like those on laptops but its pretty much the same thing, it you have it working dont mess with it. What I recommend if you get artifacts, blue-screens, or freezes is to not trash the card but attempt a re-flow of the VGA die, you can usually do it with a heat gun with a 90 percent sucess..... You want to get it above 300 degrees so get a good heat gun not a blow dryer! slowly heat the whole PCB(after removing all plastic and heatsinks) in a zig zag pattern for about 5-10 minutes, then concentrate the gun on the reverse side of the PCB right where the VGA die(GPU) is soldered for 20 minutes, then reheat the hole board for 2 minutes, then concentrate the heat gun right over the die(top shinny square of the GPU) for 5 minute intervals applying firm even pressure against the die in between intervals with a heatsink or some other even metal. After about 5 intervals allow 20 minutes to cool then test it with no cooler just long enough to see if it shows video. Do not heat to the point that you see bubbles forming on the gpu(the green part) you can even cover everything with aluminum foil except the square die if necessary.

This may seem complicated but after following the instructions its actually simple.......

Thinking of upgrading my 620 to a 920 and using my 620 on my 5870. I saw someone do it (although he's not been active since Oct '12) here:

The radiator is actually in my HD bays now blowing out... worked out better that way for me. YMMV!


I see no VRM/Memory heatsinks. I'm getting they are needed, and just a little bit of airflow over them and it'll be fine with the 620 secured with cable ties as above, or would I be better off with a Dwood bracket/making a bracket for it?

So now after refilling the system with water the temps are:
Idel: 33c Gpu/ 32.6c Vrm
Furmark Burnin test: 56c Gpu/ 73c vrm ??!?! :/

It goes fron 72.1 to 73.2 after like 14min in the Burn in test in furmark... and there are 2x140mm fans that blows air on to the card frown.gif

a bracket would be more secure and create ven pressure. ive got a bracket spare somewhere, its the one with a fan attachment.

yea the temps you listed are great, look at that vrm cooler i listed it may improve your temps on the vrms as its screwed down creating better mounting pressure
