Temp Issues GTX 280 after replacing Thermal

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hell all,

I have 2 MSI GTX280's i have recently changed the thermal paste on them, one card is idling at 45-47c(top card) and another at 40-42 (bottom card), which is great.

Now when i play games my top card gets to about 65c while my bottom rockets to 90c-95c, this card gets to 75c before the other card gets to 60. I have tried using MX-2 and 4 seperatly on the big GPU Chip, but ive used Akasa-Hi-Performance-Heat-Sink-Double-Sided to replace the pads for the memory as they got covered with dust.

I replaced everything to get the temps down from 75c. One cards dropped 15c while the other has gone up. Have i done anything wrong or is it just the card?

Any help or advise would be great.

Regards,
Topham

Re-apply the TIM on GPU with problems, or try to tunning in single configuration to check the temps.

Ive bought Phobya 1mm pads for the ram, and ive applied thermal to the GPU in a X and abit more in the middle of the cross, so it will spread out more in the middle and the temps are still getting to 85c-90c.

Im using MX-2,

Ive done the same to my othercard and thats going to 70c on load only difference is it has the original pads for the memory.
