Applying Artic Silver 5 to my 7600gt?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I know I've been posting a lot, but I have soooo much to learn and this is the place for pc knolwedge...

<3<3<3

Anyway It's been a year since I got my 7600gt. The temp has been getting hotter over the years, and I read that you could remove the gpu fan and apply thermal paste like a cpu. Sooo... how much artic silver 5 should I use for my 7600gt?

Thin thin layer, thin layer, generous amount? I know cards run a little hotter than cpu's, so I don't know if more/less thermal paste is needed

just enough to coner the die. spread it around so you have a thin layer. no need for extra. also i reccomend using a silicone based tim because artic silver conducts.

He's fine if he uses a small amount, AS5 is cooling my 9600GT now.

You definitely don't want to put too much on there, just enough to give uniform contact on the underside of the heatsink. Also there's usually some exposed circuitry around the core which could be an issue if you accidentally get some AS5 on there. Use the AC MX-2 or Noctua NT-H1 which isn't electrically conductive.

no no no, its an older die there is no heat spreader. You want to just put a VERY SMALL amount right in the middle if the chip. probably 1/3 the size of a grain of rice. If you put the heatsink back on and the AS5 thins out so much you can see the writing on the die when you remove it then its fine. Just means you have good contact.

I've got AS5 on my GPU and it works great. I painted it on very thin like the above posters said to do.
