By the looks of the TIM it looked like there was ALOT in the middle region, which suggests there was more room (a gap) there to fill.

Reason why when I applied a thinner application did it not touch the center TIM.

Thanks for letting us know NC. I didn't really want to remove the heatsink from my cards when they arrive, but it looks like I may just have to. How much of a job would it be to lap them?

I do not think I will be lapping mine or anything but what is the consensus on changing the TIM. Is it a must?

If I change the TIM, then I'll most likely lap it. It seems like there was a generous amount slapped on these GPUs to make up for the uneven surface. However, this could just be NCspec's card, we need more examples I may just monitor my temps and if they're not as low as I'd like, then I'll decide on lapping or not.

To make up for the lack of an ideal metal to metal heat transfer, this gooey stuff that is made of mostly metal yet still toothpaste like is applied between the heatsink and chip to remove gaps of metal to metal touching. If there is a part of the chip not being touched by the heatsink (or TIM there bridging the connection), then there will be air there and air heats up faster than metal and will overheat the computer chip.
Ahh I understand now! Thank you! From the looks of pics, I thought something had melted onto the card or something hehe XD

Ahhh it's finally Monday! (Never thought I would say that lol) I can finally get home and play with my new card

I will be updating the thread with information on my unlock status as I make progress.

OK a couple people asked, so here are the results for running the GPUs with the CPU clocked at 3.2ghz VS 3.4ghz.
I re-did the initial 3.2ghz run since I updated to SP2 and also the second card went from a x16 PCIE slot to a x4 to separate the two ( it was getting HOT).
first is the run@3.2ghz second at 3.4ghz

I'm a little unhappy to be honest ( with the increase, the cards are GREAT!), maybe I've to ramp it up a bit...

Can't wait to find out if that unlocks.

Thanks Gunslash!

Since the the GPU score increased by almost 1000 points with a 200 MHz bump in your CPU clock seems to show that they are indeed bottlenecked. If you're comfortable with it, try overclocking to 3.6 GHz to see if it increases again.


Also, did you run vantage with both cards at x16/x16 at all? I figure x4 may be limiting that second card a fair amount.

yeah my first post with the results a few pages back was at x16/x16...ok here it is:
it's a tad bit higher
I'll try a higher OC later and post results, my CPU isn't the greatest overclocker (it's an early C0 stepping)
