    Will this void warranty? There are no stickers over the screws so I don't see how it would be detectable unless theres a tear away section on the fan or something.

    I am getting 80*C max temperature, I'd like it around 75*C or less.

    I am planning on using Noctua NT-H1 compound.

    Repasting my XFX 7850 Double Dissipation 2GB netted -10-15*C reduction in load temperature.

    Any ideas?

    I think that won't void the warranty. But I'm not sure though. But you can re touch the thermal paste since you will do overclocking.

    Mine is staying around 70c, but I set a custom fan curve. This cooler is fairly quiet until about 80-85%.

    What program are you using to set the custom fan curve?

    EVGA precisionX. Uses same backend as afterburner though.

    With fan speed set to 100% mining got the card to 75c. The cooler itself is mediocre, but it makes a whooshing sound that doesn't bother me at all. I'll post a pic of the fan curve later.
