Reapplying thermal paste on a gigabyte gtx 670 oc windforce x3 - Page 2

post #11 of 19
For these types of heatsinks, apply thin lines of TIM into those two gaps between the heatpipes. Don't need much at all. I think there is a bit too much TIM in that picture too.

Thin lines of TIM and then let the heatsink pressure spread it?

Ignore the TIM in the picture. That is a picture from bittech.net showing the stock application of TIM by the manufacturer (which is usually expected to be crappy).

I think you should ALWAYS let the heatsink pressure spread the TIM. Knowing that the manufacturer did a terrible application, make sure you don't apply that much TIM.

Do update us on your new temps! If you get lower temps, I'll definitely pop mine open for a reapplication.

Hmmm ok. So I should apply the two lines in the gap themselves for this heatsink? Yes, I definitely won't apply it like what the manufacturer does. It's the main reason why I am reapplying the thermal paste, isn't? smile.gif

Sure, will do! But I do want more ideas about this though.

Peasize be done.

With Hyper212 it was proven that peasize covers pretty much same thing as if you had filled in the gaps. What you could do is TINT your heatpipes. Take the heatsink and a card of sorts and smear it all around and then take your card and take off all the excess so it's basically tinted with the paste.

Then you go ahead and then use pea size on the die.

**EDIT: Replace peasize with X

Smearing it with paste would only fill in the gaps, right? Do I need to do it with a card? Can I just not spread it directly on the heatsink and wipe of the excess?

This was proven in the Hyper212 and a CPU with IHS. Does this apply with the bare GPU die also and a HDT GPU heatsink?

I think it should still apply...

Can you explain more about how to TINT the heatsink?
