is it worth it..........

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
two questions

is it worth resetting the NB heatsink with better thermal grease?
is it worth lapping a gpu to get a lil better colling out of the stock gpu fan?

Yes and no.

Your NB can get really hot and they usually put waaaay too much paste on it.

Not much point lapping your X850XT there unless you're really trying to overclock the hell out of it.
