post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey, just a quick question for thermal paste application, how big is the actual gpu under nvidias big square HS?

Anyone have pics of the IHS actually removed so I can see how much paste I should be applying.

thanks.

It's about a quarter the size of the actuall heatspreader. But it's like the IHS for CPU's. It allows for a greater surface area to disperse the heat better. Give it about as much if not a tad bit more than you would a CPU.

Probably less than half the size of a regular CPU.

Lol, the 8800GTX GPU is about 4x the size of that little NB die.

Interesting, at first I was looking at the IHS and could see the outline of the green circuit board and was thinking that was the gpu, then common sense hit me.

Yeah, you have the PCB and then the actual silicon in the middle.

EDIT2: On my pic, that small green chip is what aaron showed. Then the white box I made is a VERY rough estimate of how big the actual GPU is under that silver thing.
