Self adhesive thermal paste

The fan on my GPU broke. So I took the cover and fan off completely and just put a case fan undeneath it. It seems to cool ok, but it runs at 65 degrees C when gaming. It's a 750ti, are these temps ok? I can't remember what they were when the original fan was on...

I was also thinking of using thermal adhesive to attach another heatsink I have lying around onto it (see pics) do you think this would work? Can the adhesive stick something as heavey as that? What adhesive would you recommend?

You should be able to rig a fan on there pretty easily, and will just need the connection adapter. Zip ties, rubber bands, etc should do it. Adding the second heatsink won't be nearly as effective.

Almost picked up a Johnny Marr Jaguar, btw. But, I just can't get comfortable with the 7.5" radius.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

I would personally mount the fan at a 45° angle towards the back of the case, hitting the card, pulling more air easier, and having a better angle towards the back to exhaust the warmer air...

Those fans are often pretty generic and can be easily replaced. Usually they have a square or triangular mounting pattern and as long as you get a fan that's roughly the same measurement across as your cards fan it will mount right up. Even if your fan has some obscure mounting pattern, zipties work wonders.

To be honest, I'm not really interested in replacing the original fan at all. It was noisy, even on idle and it wouldn't go below 40%. I've been looking at other peoples idle and load temps of 750ti, and I've come to the conclusion that the temps I have now are completely normal.

Thanks for the advice about putting the fan at an angle, that sounds like a good idea. If I ever get shut of the HDD on the bottom of the case (which is more likely now, as I see 1TB SSD are becoming available and cheaper now), I'll probably do that.

And yeah, I hear you about the old fender necks. Every time I play a compound radius, not to mention jumbo frets, it's sooo much easier to play

Thanks for the replies

I agree that you can buy a better replacement for it for a cheap price, then you problem will be solved. Glad you did. Find the right adhesive that suit the material if your current adhesive won't work. Noisy and idle fans are not worth the value spent.
