Just ordered a new soundcard - HT Omega Striker 7.1. Looks sweet.

Hey.. does anyone have experience or tips re: replacing stock cooling on a GPU?
My Radeon 4890's fan is fricken loud. Loudest fan in the case by a big margin.

Its not hard. The first thing you do is consult the Great YouTUBE.

2. set card upside down on a thick terry cloth towel
3. Take a small screw driver and take out all the screws holding down the cooling unit.
4 Carefully take off cooling unit unplugging the electrical plugin that is on the board
5. Gently twist the cooling unit from the Board with a slow and easy back and forth movement
6. Use Alcohol and a cotton swab and clean off the cooling compound from the top of processors and or memory
7. Install any copper memory cooling chunks that come with the kit or that is bought seperately.
8. Install new cooling compond on all the areas that you cleaned and then a little on the new cooling unit make only a small 1 micron thick coating on each area.
9. Plug in new fan wire to the board.
10 Line up the new cooler to the board installing screws from the inside middle.... out.
in a circular fashion.
Replace board to the MOBO and Pray 1 Our Father and 1 hail Mary and then power on.
11. If nothing exploded you did well.. enjoy the solitude of your new cooler.

Loving the instructions!

Would anything be gained from removing a stock cooler, cleaning it out (although its pretty clean anyway), new compound and whanging it back on? (On a 8800GT) My cooler isn't noisey but its near 2 years old and runs about 95+degrees on load. It has overheated a few times before when a more intense situation occurs in game... usually leaves me with a red screen of death, shortly followed by a blue screen of death before the wonderful unresponsive black screen of death. Dont see much point getting a 3rd party cooler as a GTX-275 is on the shopping list

I took the coolers of my 9600's cleaned the TIM and replaced it with AS5. The stock TIM usually isn't the best quality.

yes.. IF you get the Arctic Silver 5 or better and then clean and recoat it you should be able to drop 5 to 10c. Also Cleaning the fan area out will increase another 5 to 10c. But a new cooler is the best bet. 30 to 40C drops in most cases at full throttle.
