    GTX 970 higher idle temps after re applying thermal paste.

    Quick update I monitored the idle temps while browsing chrome for an hour. With a 30 percent fan curve my idle temps are sitting at 33c so it seems to be doing better. I also turned off the fans for about 5 minutes and it sat around 36c so not to bad. I will continue to keep an eye on it and...

    GTX 970 higher idle temps after re applying thermal paste.

    I completely cleaned off the cooler and die using electronics wipes dipped in alcohol. I used a can of compressed air to blow the dust out of the cooler. I used the spread method to apply a thin even layer of paste on the gpu die. Also as5 is the only paste I have at the moment and I'm kind...

    An update, even though my idle temps are a little bit higher, my load temps have dropped by a few degrees. Before I repasted my 970 i would sit between 60 and 70 when gaming. I just played some gears of war ultimate for a little over an hour and my highest temp was 61c and average temps sat...

    GTX 970 higher idle temps after re applying thermal paste.

    Hey guys. I took apart my 970, cleaned off the cooler and fans and replaced the stock paste with some arctic silver 5 and after I done this I noticed my idle temps are a bit higher than before. Before I cleaned my 970 and re did the paste I was idling between 30 and 35 c and now it sits right...

    I will give those a go since I haven't tried those yet and get back thanks for the reply. I tried all of those solutions and none of them worked. Any other suggestions would be appreciated and like I said it seems to only affect gears UE since I can download other apps just fine. Also...

    Will an Xbox live code for Gears of War Ultimate work on the windows store?

    I get what your saying but it doesn't state that gears of war ultimate is a play anywhere title only gears of war 4 is. I mean it would make sense though because it states gears of war ultimate is an Xbox live title in the Microsoft store. I might just buy it off the store to be sure I would...

    My pc freezes when watching Netflix

    I have heatsinks on my vrm's added them when I built my pc there attached via thermal adhesive which I'm not sure how long they last.

    My pc freezes when watching Netflix

    My power supply is a few years old and I'm not sure about what resolution, what ever it defaults to I don't change the settings since I rarely watch it, my girlfriend mainly watches it. I can watch youtube in 4k without issue if that's helpful. What I don't get is that I can run games all...

    My pc freezes when watching Netflix

    I am confused by your comment if you are referring to my issue. I have never used Edge to watch Netflix or any streaming content on this pc yet. And I turned off my overclock on my CPU but my system still randomly crashes when watching Netflix. If your not referring to me I apologize.

    My pc freezes when watching Netflix

    I should have added I use chrome exclusively when browsing the web. This issue is really bugging me. I mean I can game for hours on end and my system runs like a champ, for example I played Dark Souls 3 on and off all day Saturday with no issue run Netflix for an hour or so and bam, my system...
