  1. Why do you want to replace the thermal paste?

    not replace.this is first time applying thermal paste to it
  3. Anyway, you can remove the heatsink removing some screws... Changing the thermal paste won't give you any real advantages on that card...
  4. They come with thermal paste already applied.

    Removing heatisink is very easy. You just need to remove 2 or 4 screws that have springs attatched to them. After unscrewing just take out the heatsink and apply whatever you like. While tightning the screws, tighten every screw one circle at a time for even spread of thermal paste.


    unscrew them not press????i very stupid

    All graphics cards come with thermal paste already applied. For a card like that, there's no need to change it at all. In saying that though, after 2 or 3 years you might see slightly better performance if its replaced.

    If it's overheating, have you checked that there's good airflow and that it's dust free?
  10. Never had to replace thermal compound.. After some years probably
    Sounds like you just bought that card?
