would ocz thermal paste help my gpu temps. i want to get all i can out of that card so i want to keep it cool. its an x800gto. also... is putting thermal paste on the cards memory a bad idea? i dont want to put it on there if its gonna ruin stuff, but i want every last mhz i can squeeze out of that card. thanks in advance
theres a metal plate which i suppose is supposed to be a heatsink. i've had the card for about a year and a half. it was the best i could get for 100$. i'm perfectly pleased with it. it lets me play F.E.A.R., prey, quake 4, doom 3, and hitman. i can do without all the eye candy, but i do like to keep the AA on 2x. 35-40 frames is good enough for me. thanks for the replies.
It is also a very good cleaning agent and often used for cleaning electronic devices such as contact pins (like those on ROM cartridges), magnetic tape deck and floppy disk drive heads, the lenses of lasers in optical disc drives (e.g. CD, DVD) and removing thermal paste from CPUs*. It is also used to clean LCD and glass computer monitor screens (at some risk to the anti-reflection coating of the screen), and used by many music shops to give second-hand or worn records newer looking sheens. It cleans white boards very well and other unwanted ink related marks. Isopropyl alcohol also works well at removing smudges, dirt, and fingerprints from cell phones and PDAs. It is effective at removing residual glue from sticky labels.
