I've found the following on Amazon, if any one knows what I'd be better off with that'd be great:
  • MX3 - £5.47 delivery up to a week
  • MX4 - £4.68 next day delivery included (I have Amazon Prime)
  • Artic Silver 5 - £5.70 next day delivery included
  • Artic Silver Cleaner/Purifier - £5.50 next day delivery included
  • Artic Silver 5 + Cleaner/Purifier - £10.70 next day delivery included

I would have to agree with hannse12 that MX-4 would be the best choice on this list since it's easier to apply than MX-3 and performs better than the MX-2. AS5 used to be good but a lot of other pastes, including the MX-4 are better. I personally would choose Thermalright CF 3 but all these pastes are 1-2C apart which shouldn't really matter.

thanks for the info, I've just had the MX4 and some AS Cleaner/Purifier (isopropyl) delivered so will have a go at it tonight. Seeing as I don't need the MX4 right now with it pre applied, I'll keep it for future.
I went for the AS cleaner as I managed to get 1 day delivery on it. It is quite expensive and rather difficult to find isopropyl/propanol in the UK (quickest delivery I could find was 1 week), I checked at many chemists and pharmacies including the largest chain and most hadn't heard of it/didn't stock it, but could order it in. Most places offered me 2litres at £20 with a week lead time!

I also tried to find Thermalright CF 3, but could only find it at a much much higher price and sent all the way from mainland Europe

You're good to go with everything you've ordered! Keep us updated with the temps of your card once you've installed the cooler!

Enjoy!

I'm attempting tonight, I'll try very carefully not to put to much glue on that may drip down and fry the chips or something smile.gif
post #596 of 676
I've encountered a problem possibly, the small chip circled blue at the bottom of the card is very small, and the smallest angled heart sink overbalances, so I could use one of the shorter rectangular heatsinks, the only problem is that to get it (without glue so far) to sit on the small chip, it is 1mm or less from the edge of the mounting bracket for the large heatsink/fan. Is this OK/can it touch this? I have tried cutting a heatsink smaller but don't think I have anything that will do the job or if it will be small enough.
post #597 of 676
honestly, i wouldnt worry about that chip, as i dont even know what its used for tongue.gif. the chips that are in yellow are the absolute must cover, the rest are like "well, if you have a bunch of heatsinks left, you might as well rolleyes.gif ) everything should be fine at this point, just strap on that cooler and your set thumb.gif

All installed, the instructions that came with the Twin Turbo II are pretty basic and leaves a lot of guessing. The G-1 adhesive took a lot longer than 5 hours to set, I think I left it for 30 hours after 6 being no good and there was still a small movement. It was a bit fiddly to get into the case at first!

I ran a Furmark 15 minute 1920x1080 burn in test, with GPU core at 700MHz and memory at 1804MHz, it gave a score of 1850 points, avg 19fps, temp went from min 31c to 52c (although at idle it is currently 25c) and stayed stable at 52c. I'm not sure how much cooler it is now but I think around 10c lower, I only replaced it as the stock fan was noist like a vacuum cleaner, most importantly it is silent now! Thanks for all the advice!
