    Video card thermal compound

    Oh I know things will be different this summer with ambient temps. Right now ambient is 22.2. Just a cool running card compared to my last one.

    Video card thermal compound

    It does seem like MX4 has a little curing time. Idle is the same 26c-27c. Gaming I went from the low 70's to the high 60's after 4 or 5 days. Gigabyte must use some very good thermal compound and the windforce cooling solution is excellent.

    Video card thermal compound

    Is what I did was the line method going opposite the direction of the heat pipes. No change could be because were having unseasonably warm weather in Chicago right now. So higher ambient.

    Video card thermal compound

    I finally got it out of my system. I re-pasted with mx4. Just had to do it. Temps are the same so far. Maybe there's a little curing time going on or something. Not disappointed though. I know it was done right. I used about half what the factory blobbed on.

    Question regarding which version of gtx970 should i pick

    I wouldn't. Gigabyte's quality is terrible, the fans suck and fail quickly, and their customer service is garbage. When the fan failed on my GTX 970, the card was only 5 months old, it took Gigabyte 2 months to get me a working replacement. Have you looked at the Asus rma thread?

    If there is a Gigabyte version I'd go with that.

    What did it do for your 980? And what paste did you use? I have AC5 and MX4 at my disposal.

    Video card thermal compound

    I wonder if Gigabyte's are a mess too. Did re-pasting help your temps?

    Video card thermal compound

    Have you guys tried to oc them yet? What mode are you running them. I wonder if temps would go down if you run in eco mode?

    Video card thermal compound

    Yeah I think you guys are right I'll just leave it for right now. Probably going to sell it when Pascal comes out anyways. I'd love to put it on water but I don't see any reason to oc this beast.

    Video card thermal compound

    Are they? These temps are with the card in gaming mode also. 1178 normal and 1329 boost. Seriously. Just re-pasting will void?

    Video card thermal compound

    Well I've read there is no void warranty if removed stickers on the back of Gigabyte cards so re-pasting should be okay.

    Video card thermal compound

    Hey guys. Just installed a Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970. Awesome card(board) lol. Idle temp is 27c and load I haven't seen anything over 64c. Would it be worth it to replace the thermal compound? I have AS5 and MX4 laying around. Are these temps pretty good for a 970? It would be interesting to me...
