I want to change the thermal paste on my 6870 but I don't know how to do it, I made a little research but it seems like no one has my gpu, they all made instructions on how to change the thermal paste on 6870 cards from a different brand than mine , wich has 3 fans attached on it, you could see it here:
The reason I'm changing the thermal paste its because my gpu gets very hot while I'm playing videogames, it reachs beetween 88c and 100c under load and 63c on idle.
I bought it brand new about 3 weeks ago so it should be working well, it has no dust or something.
My gaming case also has no dust and its well ventilated with 1 exhaust fan in the back, 1 intake fan on the front and a 220 fan on the rear close to the gpu, you people could see my gaming case here:
I tried opening the case and I still got the same temps, I also tried to put a huge fan close to the opened case and I still got the same hot temps, so I'm willing to take the risk and change the thermal paste.
