Appreciated !

AS5 is horrid! It has a long cure time, thus your temps willcontinue to decrease. I believe it has a cure time of around 200 Hours. You might want to try a bettern, non-conducting TIM.

I recommend Prolimatech PK-1 or AC MX4.

If it was me, I would try taking off the plastic shroud and fan (without breaking them) and strap a big fan like 120mm or 140mm to it, and power it of a standard 4pin molex connector from the PSU.

My 120mm case fans are loud when using 12V so I cut their ends and used the red and black (5V and ground wire) or yellow and red (12V-5V=7V)

Thats a common fix/mod for GPU fans
