Hi guys,

I am wondering is it worth it to replace the TIm on my 7950s with MX-4 ?
I need to take the system appart this week so might aswell re-apply it.

Right now while mining I need to keep a very aggressive fan curve (100% over 74C) to keep them at around 73C...
I also had to mod the bios to lower VDDC to 1.12V instead of 1.25V. At 1.25V I would hit 90C at 100% with default clocks..

One is 2 years old I think and the other 1

Also I tried to remove the heatsink of the windforce but it's stuck any trick ?

Since your temperatures are that high, I think you may need to try replacing the paste even if it only gives you a small improvement.

You may also need to look at the airflow in your case.
