Do you remove your cooling on video to replace compund

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if anyone or is it recommended to remove the cooling unit on the video card and replace the compound between the heatsink and the GPU. My video cards are Gigabyte 6850's

I think it depends. If you load temps are steep (85c+) and it's not related to the lack of air flow than I can understand changing the TIM. So unless your temps are high, or you just feel like taking something a apart, I personally, wouldn't bother.
