What type of Shin Etsu paste should I use for repasting my GTX 770? I was using Noctua NT-H1 with a thin amount, it worked fine until I bumped the card today while I was rewiring some of the fans. I noticed the temperature greatly rose to where it was performing slightly worse than stock. It wasn't a major problem but I decided I had to repaste it again. Upon removal, I noticed the NT-H1 was still wet even though I applied a week ago. Also it was a very thin amount, it didn't look like enough, even though I was certain to cover the entire die with a thin spread. By this, I mean it looked too viscous. I have gotten better results in the past using a spread rather than the small dot method (that I use for CPUs). This time I used an unspread glob, hoping to replicate the factory's install. The result was actually better. Idle is now 28*C (stock was 34*C, first repaste was 29*C, after bumping was 31*C) Load temperatures hit only 73*C in 3Dmark11 @ default boost clock of 1254. I heard that Shin Etsu is the Nvidia reference card's paste. I have seen Shin Etsu G751, X23-7762, and X23-7783D sold in online stores. This card was a PNY non-reference so the paste was probably a generic. Which is best for a graphic's card die? Are these non-conductive? What type does Nvidia use? http://skinneelabs.com/shin-etsu-g751-x23-7762-and-x23-7783d-review/3/ In the above review, G751 looks the closest to every video card I have dissected. It also scores terribly. In other reviews, G751 scores well compared to competition. Is there something better to use than Shin Etsu for GPUs?
