Okay Thats not what I mean, like I literally just placed my GPU card on the a VGA cooler with pre applied thermal paste, but the I wasnt able to get the screw holes to lign up so i took it off real quick to fix the heatsinks that are off a little bit. Can I place it back on even though there is now thermal paste on the gpu card ?
Its fine. You don't have to replace it. Still having issues?
YES YES YES YES YES your online, i need your help bro, your my savor. So I went to apply the card onto the VGA cooler, and the screws wont line up so i cant, because I installed the heat sinks on the RAM to close to the GPU chip, so its hitting the bracket, heres a photo example: http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/7282/rimg0076.png
So basically I have to now Take off those heatsinks and re apply them farther away, can this be done without breaking the ram chip?
Okay ill download it right now, but real quick: heres using the same software , And it is 2 degrees cooler, but thats not like much at all. I did noticed though it says only 800RPM, while the image of the stock cooling pics is 1100RPM maby thats why? http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/2349/rimg0106.jpg
If that is why, IF, can i manually increase the fan speed with software?
Dude, your the man, Its up and running, so at the same speed as stock cooling which is 1100RPM in that screen shot, its 30 degrees, which is 4 less. At 65% fan speed (1400RPM) it is 27 degrees! thats a 7 degree drop!
I didn't mean leave it on for an hour haha. Do a 5 minute test to see how well the new cooler cools.
It hit 62 Degrees in the extreme burning test with furmark, that scared me. I ended it early, lol. Byt the way, its making a high bitch buzzing noise, the gpu or the gpu cooler, not sure which, dont know if its the fans, the power cord, maby the M/B
