    Owners who've replaced TIM are apparently seeing measurable temp drops. The cooler design puts the GPU at your disposal without having to mess with pads! Nice..

    Very nice to see Afterburner support. Mild OC's with a good fan profile, even without a TIM replacement.. lower temps?

    Update:
    I just finished replacing the TIM on my new 470's with AS5. I'm running Afterburner with a good fan profile and 3D clocks @ 650/1300/1700. Compared to what I've seen in reviews, I'm happy with my idle and load temps! Remember, this is w/ SLI:

    470 show down? Is that a challenge? :)
    Name your benchmark, name your terms(i7@3.2 vs i5@4.0), and let's dance!

    I was thinking of replacing the TIM but was worried about those stupid pads! Thanks for pointing this out:)
    My 470 has been staying pretty cool though, but in the long run it will be worth it to replace the TIM...
