Mainly to look at heatsink to core contact and heatsink to VRM contact... might need to dismantle it if you feel comfortable?

I have drawn up a rough checklist of things I want to run through. I will run through that and whilst doing that take some external photos. I will dismantle it and take photos if that doesn't invalidate the warranty. doh.gifrolleyes.gif

I've had that issue before. It was physical issues on the thermals of the GPU... Not physical so to speak just thermal pad installation and procedure as well as the thermal paste application of the Core Diode. Had to spread it across the whole Silicon Diode from edge to edge to create full contact and ideal lowest thermals. If you have a GPU app running in the background, could also cause it. Especially if you have had the same windows installation longer than a year.

Not too sure how to download your link :-\

For now i was going to try the following to increase clock speeds while not pumping too much mV to the card

Thoughts?

do you have info on those thermal pads, or to be more specific the thermal pads that's between the backplate and the back of the mainboard? what if I replace that thermal pad with a thermal pad that is 3.2w/k??

3.2w/mK pads are pretty weak, wouldn't be surprised if thats already whats on. You can get anywhere from 5-14w/mK but they get very expensive. For a reference blower though it seems like it does help quite a bit getting some good thermal pads. Id use it only on the VRMs though, memory doesnt get anywhere near the heat the VRMs do.

Haha 3.2W/M K with a huge sheet to cover the entire back of the PCB is spectacular... got the cash? How much and where? Post links of what your thinking of...

512-Bit Beast Ram with a half a TeraByte per second sure oh yeah its cold.. yep a Half a TeraByte of the beastly GDDR5 any GPU has ever run on any GPU ever is cold... haha

Expect the ram to far exceed the core at load trust me I felt it.... Sm-sm-sm-smokin hot chips... like sizzle your finger tip at stock clocks .. Yes Really

I've tested everything between below 1 watt per meter kelvin to 400 watts per meter kelvin "Graphite" it's only 15w/m k on the proper axis that is in use for our application on the cheap graphite though... Still amazing stuff...

Anyway yes 3.2 is solid. I use 5 watts per meter kelvin from Laird Thermagon grey stuff.. Boron Nitride and it's solid stuff... make sure it's like a tough putty... the rubbery pads are garbage but work okay for the ram if direct heatsink contact with plenty of pressure... Plus I used 5 watts per meter kelvin fujipoly on my VRM as seen above in the pics and VRM is 60C at 1200Mhz in that particular installation method.
