TIM replacement question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just got my 560 ti MSI twin frozr golden edition, and i notice the temps are pretty high for what that card is supposed to be for. Im thinking about replacing the TIM, but all i have is arctic alumina, which is the white looking stuff. Will that work?

if you going to replace your TIM get something that's top shelf ;
High Thermal Conductivity
Low Thermal Resistance
Non-Electrical Conductive
Non-Capacitive
Non-Curing
Non-Corrosive
No Bleeding

MX-2 is how i roll

I don't know about MSI but the top EVGA cards come with pretty good stuff already. I replaced the TIM on my GTX 570 with MX-4 and didn't notice any change in temps.

Problem is im getting around 72 degrees on furmark with stock settings. This is the GE made out of all copper, isnt it supposed to be cooler than the original version? Changing the tim is the only thing i can think of atm.
