Should i change the TIM ? - Page 2

post #11 of 49
I think you will only see a small improvement by changing the TIM. The GTX480 is a naturally hot card no matter what and it was a mistake card by Nvidia, thats why they brought out the GTX5xx series.

^ Yes ^ Remember pads. VERY IMPORTANT.

You can try it but nVidias are very hot cards. So don't expect miracles, "maybe" 1-3c at most. I had many nVidias and a 8800 Ultra that was literally a space heater. Of course they were old 90nm cards. Use water cooling if the heat bothers you.
These 2X 5870s are very hot this time of year and am seriously considering using just one until Sept. My case has excellent air flow but that just heats up my computer room 3-4F. It's like walking into a sauna from the hallway, ha.

Not a chance, most newer gpus dont have huge globs of TIM on them like older cards. Also the newer ones use higher quality TIM as well. I would be surprised if he could manage to do it and keep the same temps.
