Default Just reseated HSF on my HD 4850.

I finally took the time to reseat the stock HSF as I'm thinking about vmodding it and the temps were a little high. The stock paste was a bit like AS5 (texture wise, obviously not performance wise) very thick and a PITA to remove. I used some MX-2 and reseated the cooler after cleaning out all the dust etc.

Dropped 15c

Either the paste was awful, or it was applied badly. Most people who have reseated the coolers had the same results.

So I'm pretty happy right now

EDIT: Tested with fan @ 50% before and after.

Interesting. Maybe I should do the same for my 8800GTS after my final examinations are over.

Worshipme, what program do you use to monitor the video card temp? It's been a while since I've been adamantly following such things on my rig. I think I used to use Everest if i'm not mistaken...

I use HWmonitor as it recorded the max temps so I don't have to quickly ALT-Tab out of games and I can just check at the end.
