well they will know it , since the inital paste is white and what we put in there is light grey / grey so...? thei will see when they open it , if need to

** You guys returning cards; sincere good luck to ya'll.**

I'm open to more suggestions if you have them man. Id love nothing more than to iron out this small bit of microstutter. Are you and others getting 0 stutters on well working cards? Or is it to be expected still?

It was doing it on both monitors, one DVI and one DP. I've switched back to my 780 sli and it's working fine now.

well , i am from Romania , here you buy from resellers , and when you take a videocard with problems under warranty , they will open it , and you got a problem if you changed the thermal paste...you voided the warranty. it happened to a lot of people...

wow. sounds like you guys need to take to the streets and get some consumer protections going. They sent you a totally broken card and wont even exchange it?? I'd burn down their damn business....

I ended up using an old Palit card's cooler. I placed the heat sink over the copper back plate and and tried over the back end of the card.

Because I dont want to smear thermal paste all over the back of my shiny card, I have used high performance 1mm thermal pad and cut to size (had it lying around back from my laptop modding days).

Overall temperature drops were a little underwhelming. A couple of degrees if that. Perhaps it would have been better if I used two heat sinks and cooled the copper plate and the back end of the card at the same time. Although I dont think I will bother any more tbh...

I think the most gains would be from reapplying the TIM...just not sure if I am ready to rip apart my GPU yet wink.gif

Get a fan over those sinks. I saw decent fains with a stock Intel HSF alone.

I'll be putting in some coolaboratory liquid ultra on mine in a few days. Had excellent results with my previous 1080 (Amp extreme) & 780 Ti.

Will post back with results
