Am I going to have problems? I could try to remove it and paste it again.

It couldn't hurt to put it on again if you have the time/ability to do so.

Thanks for your reply.

I think I could try it doing huge benchmarks and then twisting the heatsink (with time and patience). However, the temps are quite good (I overclocked it yesterday, much more than the beginning (+130Mhz core clock and +550Mhz memory clock) and playing Batman Origins at full (with normal Physics) the VGA doesn't arrive at 60º; it stays at 56~58º. So... For the moment, I'm fine like this.

Now, yes, the last one; I'm quite worried about the sensors. I mean; in Afterburner, the memory clock is overclocked by 550Mhz. But in GpuZ, the memory clock is only increased by 270Mhz. Benchmarking and/or gaming I can see the difference (more perfomance). Do I have to be worried about it -as the RPM-?

What do you mean 'as the rpm'?

I wouldn't be worried about the memory clock being reported differently in two programs.

Thanks man. About the rpm: either the gpuz sensor or afterburner sensor gives me wrong fan rpm when I check them in these two programs. When fan is under 40%, the rpm turn over 2500-3000, when the maximum rpm are 2000. But when it's in 50% fan speed or more, the rpm are OK. I'm not really worried about it (because I can hear the difference if I change the speed fan), but I'm afraid the sensors are not working fine.

However, if it's like the memory clock (as you've said), I won't be worried.

Had the same issue on the GTX 780. I'd say don't worry about it.

Fine so. I guess I'll change the heatsink the next time I change the thermal paste and I won't do anymore. Thanks for everything, both of you!
