7970 Lightning lowering the temps

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, here's the thing... my card doesn't get too hot and I'm satisfied with it when gaming but when I'm mining a get temps around 70+c and when the heat of the summer becomes bigger it'll sure go up to 80's.. .. I know that it is not that much high but I was wondering, could I change it's fabric paste with Coolaboratory Liquid Ultra maybe? Will it damage the chip or the card itself? Because I know it's electro conductive,so I'm not sure about that... Or, I could buy some after market air cooler like Accelero Xtreme with a fresh after market paste and go on that way ? ... What do you think ?
I don't consider water cooling it yet because it's hard to find the block for her...

Arctic Cooling Acellero would be an excellent choice along with some Arctic Silver 5.

pretty sure that GPU is safe up to 90 C though

Ok thanks. Are you sure it would fit normally onto the Lightning card ? And while I don't get hold of that cooler would it be ok to install Coolaboratory Liquid Ultra on the Chip ? ... This is most important for me at the moment.

Well I'd like to hear more from people who actually had the card maybe. Why so little responses ?
