Hi is it a good idea to put Artic silver 5 or anyotrher kind of thermal paste on a GPU?? also is there any tutorial or video showing how to put thermal paste on GPU like a 6850 or similar card?
OOOOh the most important thing! by how much my temps will go down??
i expect at least 7ºC for risking to put AS5 on a GPU i know in CPU is easy but in the GPU i will have to take off the HS and remove screwss and bla bla bla
so is there a good temperature drop using AS5 on a gpu enough to risk it by opening it up?? i am asking this because i really cant find any temperature chart on the 6850 but i`ve read it is very noissy so noise=HOOT! so i think AS5 migth help with the noise -
first important note on taking off the fan of your gfx card and replacing thermal paste... it WILL void your warrenty
that said yes good thermal compound will help with the cooling of your card, but really depends on the manafacturer some use good thermal compound from the get go. some use the cheapest stuff they can get
