Operating on my 560Ti

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Okay I've decided to operate upon my lower MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II.

Reason is that the lower GPU is hotter than the upper GPU so I plan to fix this.

I wanted to get some advice so as to what all I need, and if someone can direct me to a youtube video/tutorial that would be so awesome.
I'm asking coz I don't want to mess this up, this card CAN do 1000mhz stable.

I'm only going to open the heatsink, clean it, apply a coolermaster thermal paste and fix it back. If its still hot then I'll have to consider RMA.

Screw driver and thermal paste should be all you require. Also 1GHz for a 560 Ti isn't that rare is it? The one I bought the other manages 1030MHz just fine.

Also Coolermaster thermal paste is a little meh but it'l probably be better than stock. Also good luck RMA'ing just because one of your cards runs warmer than the other.

Its pretty hot here, so in a overclock, one GPU reaches 83, the other reaches 93c

I definitely don't want that.

Plus how do I remove the existing thermal paste?
That looks like quite a challenge.

coffee filter, or paper towels.... rubbing alcohol if you really need to use a little bit.

Ughh don't have alcohol, and the paste is dried up.

DON'T DO THIS! They polish heatsinks for a reason. If you scratch it, you'll get a lower cooling performance.

Any drug store. If they don't have anything above 70~% on the shelves, you should be able to ask the pharmacist for a higher percentage (like 90+%) from behind the counter.

Alternatively, you can go buy a bottle of Everclear (liquor store/grocery/maybe drug store {Riteaid/CVS}) and use that. tongue.gif
