Ya, ive had some epic moments myself....like the time i bought a V8 cooler and forgot to remove the film off the bottom before installing it doh.gif If thats not stupid enough i removed and reinstalled the cooler three times before figuring it all out tongue.gif

Not sure what to do for getting them sticky again but thanks to you ill not be making that mistake myself thumb.gif

It did come with tape, but no instructions, I guess it was my fault that I didn't google how to install them. Good thing they give you 5 extra thermal tape squares. Started with 30 thermal tape squares and 20 copper sinks, had to throw away 5 of the thermal tape squares because of bad installation.

The thing is, these Enzotech sinks already have the tape on them, and you just peel off the protective paper off them, and then they stick.
When the white paper is peeled off, it leaves a clear layer of thermal tape on the sink.
That's how all of the Enzotech sinks I've used came, with the tape pre-applied.
Edit:
You must have stuck another layer of tape on the paper of the Enzotech sinks. If so, you would just need to peel off the extra piece of tape and the paper layer it's stuck to.
Then you should still have the original layer of thermal tape stuck to the sinks, then they're ready to apply.

It didn't have the tape pre-applied, I had to apply them myself

The blue strip under the 8 heatsinks are the tape I had to apply

Ah, thanks for the photo!
Mine had a thin clear layer of thermal tape under that layer of protective film, applied to each sink.
If yours were just bare copper, then they've changed it to a self-applied method, I guess.
Well, you should be able to clean off the bad sinks and put a new piece of thermal tape on them again to use them.
But the quality varies, I've found 3M tape to stick well.
Kudos for getting Enzotech sinks, they are great, being pure copper with a tall "fin" area.
You're really going to have a well-cooled card when it's finished:thumb:

I put a small dot of thermal paste on the thermal tapes that wouldn't stick at all, but instead love to slide, and it seems to hold it off pretty well... Is small thermal paste on VRM's a bad thing? I may be stupid, but i'm testing new things biggrin.gif

Alright, I have 17 of the heatsinks sticked onto the card, and 3 are just laying around waiting to be put in. I've tried to take my core clock fro 830 to 840, and I artifact when furmarking. I'd suppose I need more volts. Is there a way to unlock my voltage to go over 1.1?

You're going to need a custom BIOS for the 470 that overrides the voltage limiter.

Any clues where I would get a custom BIOS? And what I should exactly be looking for? I thought I had to flash my graphics card, but I guess I gotta learn more

You will have to flash your GPU with the new BIOs.

Try the VoltageMod club or the NVIDIA 400 Series Owners Club. If that fails, try Google.. tongue.gif
