lower OC after as5?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok so i finially got my HSF to come off of my 6600GT and i cleaned it all up good with rubbing alcohol, applied as5 sparingly to the core and all the ram, and put the heatsink back on. then i starte up my computer and teied to overclock it. I was able to get a much higher overclock on the ram but i had to take the core overclock down to not get any artifacts even when my memory is at stock.. why would that be?

1. You may have put too much AS5 on the core, thus causing bad tempratures.
2. You may have mounted the HSF on the card wrong or not tight enough.
3. AS5 has not had enough time to cure.

i made sure the as5 didn't get on anything it shouldn't, i will try cleaning it all again and reapplying it, and when i put it back on the heat sink is held on by little white pegs with springs and i have thought that maybe it's loose so i was wondering if there was any other way i should be fixing it to the card because when it was stock it was held on by something like double sided tape on the RAM which made it more secure now it kinda slides a little if you wiggle it which made me nervous.

You need to use the white thermal paste/Céramique on the memory.
