I replace the thermal for one of my 970 G1 ( the new paste is Gelid EX) and gain nothing that's mean gigabyte use a high quality thermal paste ..


So is evga's any good? Or is it just not worth it

Using MX-4, you might see a slight improvement through better paste application, but I wouldn't expect to see that large of a drop in temperatures. MX-4 performs a little worse than Shin-Etsu. thumb.gif

Shin etsu performed less than 1C better than mx-4 was one of the best so i wont see a difference unless it was applied terribly which i wont find out without disassembling it

I have no more money for ordering stuff. I thought mx-4 was really good and would help especially with a human doing the paste instead of a factory machine
EVGA hybrid is a reference card with a $40 cooler on if (if that). Sold to you for +$100.
No vrm cooling, no ram cooling and definitely not the power delivery the FTW and Classified cards have.

On mine it was globbed on and using Antec Nano Diamond ($7, Best Buy) I dropped 10c.

Smeared it with mah finger.smile.gif

It cools the vrm and ram with the stock fan. Also the ftw and classified dont cool as well and run louder. The hybrid will run quiet and defintly get at least 1400mhz which is all i need. Ik the price rips me off but i have an acx rn and isnt compatible with any AIO

almost all user with EVGA card changing the thermal paste get 3-5c at least so its worth .. but again if your temp good no need to play with 700$ card thumb.gif

The Hybrid is awesome card reference PCB will not hold you back by the way and the card have a plate over the VRM cooled by the blower fan so there is a cooling for the VRM thumb.gif

Honestly there is an idea now to selling my 970s for 980 TI hybrid. I love that card from EVGA smile.gif

If expecting 1400+ I'd go gigabyte.
I've never heard of any one getting less than 1500 with one across the whole 900 series.

My FTW runs 1493 @ 65c with the fans turning 20% under full load (Project CARS @ 4k no vsync)

Are the hybrid cards voltage locked?

Fans at 20% 65c? My sc acx needs 70% fan to keep at 70C under full load is there that muchof a difference? Also classified and all those dont really help overclock cuz those cards have a custom pcb designed to help with voltage delivery, thing is, maxwell doesnt scale well with voltage like kepler did so you wont see much a difference other than cooling maybe
post #1129 of 8542
Also dark, what thermal paste method do you use for the 980ti? An X or an X witha cross through it or a big pea size? I dont want to spread it cuz that **** doesnt work well

The hybrid is voltage unlocked up to 1.28v at least thumb.gif

980 VS 980 TI there is around 100w difference between both thumb.gif
