Default VGA cooler!!!!

I bought this cooler today

http://translate.google.com/translat...D%26safe%3Doff

And my temp went from 40C to 80!!! How do I get it down. Ive installed it properly, and thermal paste has already been applied!

Any ideas?

it doesnt show the cooler, just "swiss art of engineering"

well, could be the contact surface is not completely flat. seems to be the deal with my pipe101. i just dont know how to lap it to make it completely smooth so i cant help you. maybe try some arctic silver???? heard it has good conductivity, and it will prolly help.

well, sometimes if it blocks exhaust air flow, it heats up, some of those vga coolers are bulky

WHOA not even TOUCHING IT!!!! ide advise u to take it off right away or if u can tighten it. what i would do is find plastic washers or something nothing metal though and try and stiff if u can force some pressure on it. if it doesnt work or u cant find any order thermal paste and glue the thing on and see if that helps. if not it could be defective and the shaved it down to much so u might have to return it.

tighten it down all the way, your gpu should have a metal shim to protect it from being crushed.

Bought some thermal paste today and added a decent amount. Then managed to tighten it alot more than I could before. All is good now Running at a lovely 41C And in games not going above 50, so Im happy now.

Thanks for your help people
