When you remove the heatsink, does the paste application appear to be even, or uneven?

Also, do you get higher temperatures with the side panel on? If you don't know, then experiment.

Watch it so many times that you know exactly what he's going to do before he does it; and I mean exactly. You'll be able to flash your card with 100% confidence, and you'll be completely relaxed while you're doing it too - as though you've done it hundreds of times.

OMG its like you guys are trying to disarm a bomb or something
just make sure you dont drop a sweat on the keyboard or else

It's pretty much the same, I just keep it off because I know I'm going to be seating and reseating...

And I guess it's even.

I have a total of 6 case fans and 2 rad fans for my H50, I'm guessing I have enough airflow.

Thanks Cables. Is there anything special I have to do before I take out my current ATI cards? Driver sweeper etc? Again, never done any of this stuff before. I will watch video.

I switched from ATI as well.

My process was like this:

Driver sweeper all display drivers currently installed.
Replace ATI card with new 465.
Install current drivers, make sure 465 is functioning correctly before flashing.
Boot to flash drive, flash to 470 Bios.
Boot in, if it detects it with current drivers, check to see if it's unlocked, if not, sweep and reinstall drivers.

Just rebooted from DOS and both 324 and 612 unlocked no problem. My first card is running a bit hot though due to the close proximity of my slots to each other. Not much I can do for that as I had the same issue with my old 285s as well, but they never had an actual issues.

Oh, excellent question! You're right, do this:
  1. Use the Programs and Features control panel to uninstall everything related to the ATi cards (especially CCC).
  2. Open Device Manager, expand "Display adapters", and then right-click each graphics card and choose "Uninstall".
  3. Reboot into Safe Mode (very important) - hold down F8 right when Windows is about to load.
  4. Open Driver Sweeper
  5. Choose "ATI - Display".
  6. Click Clean.
  7. Repeat for good measure
  8. Close Driver Sweeper.
  9. Shut Down.
  10. Swap out the graphics cards
  11. Boot back up, and install! Just ignore the fact that Windows 7 will install the driver that it comes with. :/ It's all good though because you performed the above steps!

Yeah!
It's a computer!

A bit disappointed so far. It could well be my old OS or the games, but I benchmarked a couple using FRAPS and max in-game settings both stock and flashed. I used the GTX 470 BIOS from the link in the Romanian site (its stock GTX 470):

Fallout 3 (same saved game spot from Rivet City to Megaton in bright light)

GTX 465:

2010-08-09 12:08:53 - Fallout3
Frames: 25175 - Time: 446665ms - Avg: 56.362 - Min: 27 - Max: 63

GTX 470:

2010-08-09 13:42:19 - Fallout3
Frames: 25083 - Time: 444562ms - Avg: 56.422 - Min: 24 - Max: 63

Damn near identical. The stock GTX 465 actually was smoother though (less hitching).

Sacred 2 (just running around the countryside with the camera zoomed out)

GTX 465:

2010-08-09 18:14:53 - sacred2
Frames: 8190 - Time: 229587ms - Avg: 35.673 - Min: 0 - Max: 54

GTX 470:

2010-08-09 17:40:38 - sacred2
Frames: 3891 - Time: 183562ms - Avg: 21.197 - Min: 0 - Max: 32

That one was hideous on the GTX 470 BIOS. I did notice my GPU usage in that game was around 50-60% flashed and 99% stock. Something amiss there. My 3dMark06 score was 18,976 with the GTX 470, 18,363 with the GTX 465. I think I got a dud. The only thing I noticed after flashing was 5C more heat at load. The GTX 465 was 37C idle and 60c Gaming. The GTX 470 was 38C idle, 65C gaming.

Are you sure it's fully unlocked? Mine was reading GTX 470 but the memory was not unlocked. Check GPU-Z and make sure it says 1280 MB of memory, etc.
