DeepCool Dracula VGA Cooler: Buyer Beware! It's irreversible! - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I'm glad you're getting it resolved, but I have to ask why you (or anyone for that matter) would use an aftermarket cooler that can't be removed? It seems insane...if you need to RMA the GPU for any reason you're more or less screwed.

That certainly wasn't the intention, my prior coolers were removable for that very reason, and I assumed this one was as well as there was nothing on the packaging / instructions to indicate otherwise. The paste itself was like the thermopaste used on CPUs, it was only after it dried that it was apparent that it wasn't coming off.

Which actually makes me nervous about coolers in the future, how to tell if the paste provided is readily removable or not - I don't know that I've seen that explicitly posted on the packaging in either case for most that I have seen...
