diff b/w NV5 Rv.2 and Rv.3? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Before temps were:

Idle - 55°C

Load - 82°C *yikes*

The stock cooler that came on my card was junk. My card runs 100% stable now at 440/850 at the temps I gave you in the post above. My cards stock speeds were 325/600 and I was getting those crap temps at stock! Forget about an OC. Dropped $30 on the Silencer, installed it, started OC'ing and you can imagine my amazement at how far the card went above stock speeds. Not to mention I was pulling much lower temps. After a week of testing, I was so confident in the cooler, I flashed the BIOS of my card so now the cards "stock" speed is 440/850. If you get it, you'll be happy, I sure am

The paste is applied for you, all you gotta do is remove the plastic cover that protects it. And don't forget to peel the adhesive backings off the Mem pads! Good luck!

hm...i think i misread one of the instructions...i think it was step 6 with the metal plate. at first i had already installed everything and then i read step 6 which said something about using the metal plate to push down the thermal pads onto the ram...i was quite confused about that. so here is where i think i REALLY f***ed up: after reading step 6 i removed the pads from the cooler and placed them over the RAM and used the metal plate to push them down...is there anything i can do to salvage my card and cooler? ....btw...other than tightening the cooler to the card, what are the back metal plate and rubber supposed to do?...also, will my card consume more power with the new cooler(assuming i can salvage whats left of it)? my PSU is rated @ 250W, but ran the card fine w/o any problems, but soon as i booted it up with the Silencer, i got the BSOD ...i think that it may have been my fault as i removed the thermal tape from the cooler and placed it on the card then placed the cooler on the card....any helpful advice is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance

Ok, what they meant by use the plate was as you tightend down the plate, it would squish the pads on the RAM. If the pads aren't too tore up, just leave them on the RAM and put it together. Otherwise, you just have to get same new pads, no biggie. Also make sure you have the rubber under the metal backplate, it keeps it from shorting out the card. Your PSU is too small IMO. I think those cards need like a 300-350 minimum to run right.

EDIT: In step 6 they are referring to the cooler for the chips on the back of the card if you have them. My card does not and I did not use that plate. But putting the pads on the memory then sticking that plate to it is what you are supposed to do.
