post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I plan on applying some CLP thermal compound to my HIS 250x, dose anyone know if it has those thermal pads for the ram?

I think you don't really need thermal paste on the VRAM, because the disipation is done by direct contact with the heatsink.But you don't have thermal pads on the VRAM modules.

I took it apart and applied some CL liquid pro on the die, found there is no heatsink/ram contact.

As I said, the cooling is done by disipation.If you're using watercooling or you OC the card yoo need to cool the RAM modules and the VRMs.
