My Evga 9600GSO 384 mb, card tended to run in high 60 deg Cels unless fan was set to 100% even on idle load. to offset that i tried applying AS5 HD on it yesterday. it seems to have backfired. previously on keeping GPU fan at 100% i could expect temps in 52-60 range at idle-50% loads .
after applying AS5 my idle temps are always above 65 deg cels.
i m afraid to run any game fearing that at higher loads the temps will go over 70 degs.
what should I do?
also can someone tell me what color is the Arctic Silver 5 High Density cream supposed to be?
i am unsure if the vendor has provided me with a genuine product or not.
mine is a dirty tin color with a hint of brown. its definitely not the silver color and it did not come in and packing. only the syringe with the standard AS5 labeling.
If someone can help me out here then I will test AS5 out on my New 555 cpu.
I hope you realise Arctic Silver 5 requires 200 hours of operation and a lot of turning on and off to "cure". Temperature will not stabilize until the curing process is complete. That's for a cpu. I would think it is similar for a gpu.
