If you have the right tools for the job and pay attention to what you're doing, you should be fine I was just really persistent to get my crappy screwdriver to work. The screws that are really delicate are the small ones on the back, and you don't even need to touch those to replace the TIM.

If you just want to replace the TIM, you pop off the shroud using the tabs around the sides, and remove the heatsink by loosening 4 large screws in the heatsink itself. I managed to strip those a teensy bit as well

Awesome sparky

Your clocks are amazing.

I'll be sure to post up my VID when I get the card running.

If I can hit 800MHz core and 1400 shader I'll be very happy.

What kind of scores you getting in Vantage/3Dmark06 with your GTX470 and Q9550?

Core and shaders are linked on Fermi, and you can't unlink them as far as I can tell. Don't sweat the heatsink reseating. Just knowing to be careful should keep your card safe

Thanks brah.

I'm gonna use my old 8800GT as physX too. But I don't really play any games that require physx.

I'm going to buy BlackOPS and maybe Metro so I can really use my rig to it's full potential.

Oh and damn I didn't know they were linked and couldn't be unlinked.

I'm really hoping for 800MHz core. Seems like the 'linked' core/shaders would really make it hard to get there.

I don't think you'll have much trouble hitting 800 core/1600 shader as long as you don't get a really bum clocker. Mine hits 800 at 1.05V, and I strongly believe I could lower the voltage if the temps were what they used to be

awesome. I should see a huge performance increase if that's the case.

I'm bringing my 25.5" Monitor that does 1920x1200 to my apartment to really use the GTX 470 to it's full potential.

If I can get 3.6GHz on my Q6600 and 800MHz/1600 shader on my GTX470 I should be able to get at least 17k in Vantage which is quite impressive if you ask me.

Time will tell, Q6600 and Antec TPN750W are being shipped to me and I should have it all by Christmas

EDIT: silly question, but how do you check VID of the card?

After you enable voltage control/monitoring in Afterburner, the stock voltage it shows is the VID.

Oh my I have high hopes for my card considering the VID, but I really need to get my temps in check. Doesn't help that I test my OCs for like 2 hours in EVGA OC Scanner, lol.
