on GPUs / Direct Die

MX4 just melts like butter and temps are rising like crazy within weeks. (i had MX4 on a 6900XT for three days and the hotspot went from low 80s to over 100c...
meanwhile the MX5 i put on the same 6900XT in late march last year is still fine.
Hmm i remember using AS5 on Athlon XPs which were the last Direct Die CPUs. I know it has a baking time but i wonder if it would work lol

Here's a quick and dirty graph showing my 5700 XT's temps while running Unigine Heaven at Ultra in a 1080p window for about 9 minutes. I started the benchmark where the initial temp spike is.


Red is GPU Temp, Green is Hotspot Temp, and Blue is Memory Temp

GPU maxed at about 72C, hotspot at about 85C, and memory at about 82C

Was it a Evoke?

Both the Evoke and MECH models have the same heatsink and inadequate thermal pads for the memory. Mine's a MECH model.

arctic silver 5 is the only paste i've never used in my whole life.
i heard that it takes like 200 Hours of burn in to work as intended :D

Yeah i know about those cards, Gamers Nexus Criticised them like they did on XFXs fatboy cards

Yup i do recall that, a safter alternative to Conductonaut, liquid metal, diamond based pastes.

I heard Cerameque was bad ass too

I'll also point out that I haven't replaced the thermal pads on my card yet. I just went through and made sure the existing ones were properly centered on the memory modules.

Yup, poor QA on MSIs part. Them and GA I avoid, we shouldn't be having to open our cards to replace pads within a years time either.

Upgrade the thermal pads, I have a Mech OC, that with the new pads I put on, dropped mem temps 8c. These are what I used.

So 3mm pads are the right size and not 2mm?

They might, I needed 3mm for another card I have, so just used those, but did have to use some thicker washers to get the contact on the die, though I did some things to that which might be more the culprit than the pads.

Any suggestions help in this matter, it seems nv are troublesome as well (EVGA)

arctic MX4 turns into silicone oil soup after a few days/weeks, the whole Thermal Grizzly lineup is completely overrated and only useful for sub zero overclocking.
This part is quite interesting...
I didn't notice that (on the old, used paste) when I disassembled the card, but when I repasted it afterwards (still using MX4) it looked like it was separating, bunch of silicone oil came out first and paste after that so I had to mix it, definitely weird.
The tube I was using was just few months old, so I'm not really sure if it's the paste in general being bad or if I was just that lucky and got a bad/contaminated batch or something.

It's the paste.
Arctic MX4 is a great paste for a low power or well cooled CPU. but on a GPU it just seperates very fast.
Arctic MX5 fixed that. it turns from a sticky liquidy paste to a hard layer of "gum" and stays like that.
