Sadly they claim that their HC video boards undergo the most rigorous testing of any of their video boards. It's a shame that something like this would slip past their Quality Control team. It is a genuine PITA to have to drain your loop to RMA the video board. I have been putting off draining my loop so I can install my new EKWB Supremacy EVO waterblock and dual bay pump/res combo unit. This is the only pic I could find that shows the LED operating normally.



Drilled a hole for my LED and it is much brighter now...thumb.gif

If that's the case, then go with ceramique 2 because it's a pretty good paste, so much so that it's the backup for a decent amount of subzero benchers. It's also not that far away from Gelid extreme for performance,if I remember correctly.

to be honest i ordered the AS5 not the ceramique 2 , i am willing to take the risk for sake of performance , i will only apply it a little in the middle , i wont smudge it over all the GPU

That looks so much better now. You did a good job with that.

I applied TIM on my GTX-680 boards using the pea sized drop method and had no problems. Then someone pointed out to me that applying TIM to a GPU isn't the same as a CPU. You need to cover each and every corner of a GPU chip. EK advised using the 'X' method of drawing an 'X' with the thermal paste to insure complete coverage when I installed their waterblocks. That's what I did and the results are excellent.

Thanks for the help, i am going to apply AS5 with X or + method.

I would go with the 'X' to be certain you cover from corner to corner as was pointed out to me by some helpful member somewhere whose name I can't recall right now.

ok i will apply via the 'X' method from corner to corner ...i will let you know what happens tomorrow .... by the what does 200 hours of curing time mean in terms of thermal paste ? and i know everyone calls thermal paste TMI , but what does the abbreviation 'TMI' stand for , dont say too much information biggrin.gif

Thermal interface material= TIM not TMI...

I always called it Thermal Paste and didn't know exactly what TIM was when I first saw someone use the term. Then I got old and lazy and typing TIM is a lot easier than Thermal Paste. LOL
