yeah there was a casualty of war.lol..gotta buy new sniper series ram now
..there goes 50 bucks..oh well.. next time i'll take more time removing.
and i'm going to clean them with a lint free cloth thumb.gif
next is removing my z77 sabertooth armor and airbrushing it and
replacing the z77 chipset heatsink with waterblock. wish me luck lol..

dude. that sucks.

next time, hit the ram modules with a heat gun - trust me.

you may burn your hands a bit removing the stock heatsinks but they'll come off like butter compared to ripping the memory chips off the modules thumb.gif

its the same thing

i realize its the same temp - what i was talking about is Aida is the best all around temp monitoring program. either way im suggesting you should fix your vrm temps asap. i'd order some more thermal pads if i were you. crazy that alphacool did not include them with the waterblock. disappointing.

EDIT: i'd get these.

i've got them before, and they worked great. until i decided to just use thermal compound on vrm chips from now on and not pads.

well yeah great, but no.

I already put thermal pads on the vrms, putting more or different pads won't really do much if its not making good contact anyways.

attitude? only trying to help dude.

back when i had gtx 460's, i had EK blocks on them and the specs said 0.5mm thick pads were required. well it wasn't enough. ended up having to stack pads on top of each other for them to make contact with the block.

my only guess is that's the case for your card - seeing as it's non reference.

that, or you gotta lemon card.

its a 2-3mm gap.

I might as well stack copper tape and a thermal pad. lol

stock vrms are 2mm thick pads and 1mm mem pads.

that's a crazy gap - but check it out, i had to do the saaame thing with my gtx 460s

i stacked them up 4 times = ~2mm thick

it worked though.

smarter option probably would be this

edit:
but buying thermal pads without know if it will help or not just seems like a waste.

22 dollars is the cost of 1/3rd of a new block.
