Still better than pea size smile.gif

I usually always use the pea method, but it seems that the new NV chips really prefer a better spread on the die, especially with the stock air cooler. Depending on paste, a normal pea size + additional tiny peas in a X pattern may or may not be enough.

If you are using GC-Extreme, it's good to be slightly more generous than you think is "enough".

EK are quite fond of the 'Union Jack Flag' method.

A '+' and a 'x' on top of each other over the die.

I have always used the pea size method. Never had temp issues.
post #18964 of 21379
Tested spread method and zero improvement. If anything, it made things worse. I used a card to smoothly spread the paste. Was not fun but clean. I conclude that the paste from factory was fine. The Reapplication did +/-5% improvement. Everyone else has either crazy low ambient or are lucky few. Statistically, I might be the norm. I won't waste spending time even talking about case airflow because I have done a lot to improve it already. I will settle with zero oc and work on getting quiet operation.

Are you changing fan profiles? Stock it will run as hot as it can get up till your temp limit before ramping up fans.

I suggest setting a more aggressive fan profile especially if you are running in SLI.

Ofcourse. All the temps mentioned till now are on a profile more aggressive than PX Auto Aggressive profile. I let it hit 100% at 60C.
