I never OCed my vid card but it went to crap

My 6800u is not able to get by a aquamark3 benchmark anymore, the temp is fine but it freezes up on me. It can freeze up in any part of the benchmark but on the massive overdraw big explosion is a point it can't get by anymore. I don't know what I did but when I installed my silencer5 it worked fine but then I removed the metal casing around the gpu and I added thermal paste to all of the memory chips and now it won't even do a benchmark. I have no idea what to do but if anyone has anything to input it would be greatly appriciated.

  1. did you change any of the drivers? make sure that the thermal paste isnt touching the pcb at all, thats all i can think of for now. Peace
