MSI GTX465 Twin Frozr II Golden Edition Owners Club - Page 108

post #1071 of 5083
Just a quick question here.. I'm definitely replacing the TIM when mine comes in..

I've read that AS5 is better than mx-3 or shin-etsu for gpu's because it's thicker and a more robust paste? Where mx-3 and shin-etsu are better for your cpu because they spread better?

Would you reccomend me using as5.. It doesn't spread well and I know that GPU's need to be covered (more surface area) than cpu's. If not.. then mx-3 should do?

Yeah, you're right. The topic turned quickly to benchmarking programs, and I thought I had gotten in on that discussion. But I missed it. LOL. I should have made myself more clear. Either way, it's not on topic for this discussion, so I will leave it at that. Thanks for the URL TwoCables.

Also, when you guys are posting temp readings from your cards, are you running any case modifications? Like having the side off? Or are these "real world" readings?

I run my case side open all of the time, and my idle GPU readings at stock fan speed (set to auto) is at 33C. At load under real world usage (not benchmarking) it's around 58-60C. (That's running Crysis at max settings, AA off, 1600X1050 res, avg 55 fps)

No, it's the other way around. Shin-Etsu is better for GPU's than AS5 because it's thicker.

But of course, Shin-Etsu is a brand with multiple formulations, so ... it may depend on which one they were referring to.

Most likely X23. It's what I'll be using on mine. I have a gram and a half hanging around just for purposes such as this.

Judging from the pics in this post in combination with him saying that he is seeing really good results, I think I'd say now that GPUs don't need as much coverage as CPUs.

But I think I'm still going to replace the stock TIM with my Tuniq TX-2 that I have laying around. But before I do that, I'm going to see how well MSI's thermal paste application does. Although, I am tempted to get Tuniq's TX-3 paste! Although, their TX-4 paste is available now too!

Plus, this thread moves way too fast.

But anyway, you're welcome.

Yeah, don't you wish it were $10 less? It's actually $279.99. Newegg has really dropped the ball on this. Good job, Newegg.
