Problem with 7800 GTX Arctic Cooling NV5 Rev 3

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Has anyone else found that the silver metal plate that sits on the rear of the card doesnt stick very well? Infact mine doesnt stick at all - the thermal pads are not sticky enough - has anyone had this problem? If so what have you done to stick the plate on?

Cheers,
J

Also the back plate is held on by screws... Put the nv on (with all the plastic thermal pad covers taken off. Put it through the gpu so you have 4 pins sticking out the back. Put the back plate on. Then screw it up tight with the thumb screws provided.

Yeah I have taken off all the paper from the thermal pads - the stickyness is rubbish.

How is the back plate held on by screws??? I dont mean the black plate that holds on the actual silencer, i mean the silver aluminium plate.
