2080ti thermal paste?

Hey. I remember when it was popular and beneficial to replace the factory thermal paste on graphic cards. I use to always do that. In fact before I even installed one I'd replace the heatsink and apply artic silver. Every single time. This was years ago. Then after market companies started to install better cooling and I stopped applying new paste. I currently have a Asus Strix 2080ti. In runs fairly cool maybe around 50 to 55c while gaming. Around 30c something at idle. Would I even benefit from maybe applying some grizzly paste? Just wondering.

Put others before yourself.

depends how good/bad the stock paste/application is on your card. won't know until you take the heatsink off and look.

might as well go all the way and buy some conformal coating and use liquid metal though, IMO.

Not sure on the 2080ti but i replaced all 7 of my 980ti cards paste with Tgrizz also my 1080ti and it showed a nice drop in stock temps. I would do it.

I put Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut on my GPU and saw a 10-15C drop in Unigine/Superposition, Futuremark, and AAA games.

It’s so messy and hard to clean though, Plus it’s always in the back of my head the liquid metal leaking and getting into places it shouldn’t. Maybe I’ll give the new Thermalright TFX a try.

Hi,
I wouldn't use liquid metal on an aluminum heat sink though not sure why anyone would even mention it for a air cooled gpu

unless you got your GPU from the Big Lots bargain bin your GPU heatsink base is probably not aluminum.

Depends on the temps you are getting now and compared to others. Temps seem good IMHO. I did the Hybrid route with a h100 v2 and kraken kit with some small mods on the CLC pump housing. Temps never go over 60c in any scenario.
