What can actually damage the GPU chip when using that liquid metal?
Is there a way to find the components somewhere?


The liquid metal could make contact with other components on the board, and short them.

Some liquid metal, like liquid ultra, will also dry out and harden the cooler to the core, which risks cracking the core. Supposedly conductonaut does not dry out.

Use liquid electrical tape or kapton tape..........................


Clear fingernail polish. It's like 99 cent and works like a charm, and comes with a handy dandy brush that perfectly fits around the core.

Wow, an excellent idea for those who blew every last penny on the card and insist on doing the TIM themselves, but can't affort a high quality brand.
 
The nail polish will literally work majic on your card. A most timely and helpful suggestion. Wish I'd thought of that!!
 
Pictures of nail polish upgraded GPUs, before and after would indeed be great to see!! Real smokin stuff!!

I think you missed the point. Glad you chimed in to show you understood what was being said rather than asking.

Hint, this thread is about Liquid Metal being used.

Second Hint, fingernail polish is to protect the components like capacitors, WHILE Liquid Metal is used. If you are confused, i can spell it out a little more clear.

Third hint, maybe the liquid electrical tape would have been a tip that we were talking about protecting other components. Or maybe the kapton tape... You know... since those protect the components from the liquid metal.

Did you think someone was suggesting fingernail polish as a TIM.... REALLY!? Because, that would be foolish.

P.s. you can also use non-conductive TIM in place of fingernail polish, kapton tape, or liquid electrical tape.

Holy crap! I thought the sarcasm was obvious. To be clear, no nail polish should not be used instead of TIM. Yes, that would be idiotic.

Sarcasm doesn't transfer well across letters on the internet. It never surprises me when someone takes things the wrong way.

Re: 1080TI FTW3 with Liquid Metal 2017/09/07 15:28:08 (permalink)
I am thinking about use metal liquid in my new evga gtx 1080 sc for getting better temperatures and less noise.
 
I would like to know for sure, if the "heatsink base" (I mean, only the base, not all the heatsink) of my evga gtx 1080 SC (EVGA 08G-P4-6183-KR) is aluminum or nickel plated copper.

 
I would like to use Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut and I need to know which the material of the heatsink base.

Do any EVGA officials browse this forum?


Yes... Muahahaha 
 
But in all seriousness I highly recommend that you DO NOT use liquid metal for cooling. The cost of voiding the warranty and buying a new GPU is not worth a few degrees. It's much cheaper to buy a Hybrid cooler and your temperatures will be much better!

Using another thermal paste is perfectly cool though, right? ;)

I think best option for OP is to try Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut then, very close to efficiency of Cosmonaut, and doesn't void warranty

This, this and this.  
 
If you want cooler temps, drop your room ambient temp, get the best internal case airflow, cable management and go AIOs or custom cooling.

I am leaving Kryonaut right now. My temps keep climbing on my primary card. Going back to the trusty mx-4 now.

Me too. I have had much better results using MX-4. That Kryonaut was really expensive too. My video board temps rose almost 5°C.

If you really do it well, like the guy of the video, it doesn´t void the warranty.

If you cause a short and damage the card, you'll end up with a nice paperweight and a story to tell all who ask
 
Using conductive TIM has risks and should not to be done without understanding those risks ---- No Warranty if you damage the card

Hey Scarlet-Tech are you sure the plate that contacts the GPU die isn't nickel plated copper?
 
I thought everything that uses heatpipes usually does that or leaves the copper plate bare (Ie. not nickel plated).  The reason for this is it's a real PITA to solder copper<->aluminum (heatpipes are copper).
 
That said the liquid metal TIM is a horrible idea for a GPU.




that does NOT look like nickel plated copper.

Wow. I am surprised to see some of you having less than stellar results with Kryonaut. I've been using it for years and on my FTW3 since right after getting it at launch and have had a solid sustained 5-7C drop overall in temperature over the stock thermal compound which falls right in line with the performance I've experienced with it from the beginning. That said, I have never used MX-4, so I have no basis for drawing comparisons between the two, but I'm now kind of curious if it'd be worth a try to see if it performs just as well as, especially considering the difference in price.

So beautful the cleaned gpu :) wow love this. doing this will avoid the warranty, no?


If you really do it well, like the guy of the video, it doesn´t void the warranty.

Do any EVGA officials browse this forum?


Yes... Muahahaha 
 
But in all seriousness I highly recommend that you DO NOT use liquid metal for cooling. The cost of voiding the warranty and buying a new GPU is not worth a few degrees. It's much cheaper to buy a Hybrid cooler and your temperatures will be much better!




Yes, it will void the warranty.
Said by a EVGA Tech itself.

You could take all necessary preventions for avoiding a short on your card, but the fact that you will use liquid metal on your GPU over TIM is voiding the warranty.

using Liquid Metal on ur GPU does not void warranty..., it only MAY CAUSE to void ur warranty, I've known ppl who use Liquid Metal throughout the years on their EVGA Cards, and still managed to get RMA and got replacement cause their GPUs decided to malfunction (fans breaking, artifacts, etc). only thing you need to make sure is to put everything back to stock (and replace the liquid metal with regular TIM). I mean having a short on the components near the gpu die is visible which will indicate liquid metal has killed your card which will in tell... void ur warranty, but if this is not the case, then ur warranty is fine.
 
I my self is using Conductonaut Liquid Metal on my 1080Ti combined with EKWB GPU Block, so Im not using the stock cooler, if this card decides to die and its not due to liquid metal, just have to put it back together on stock cooler and remove the liquid metal and replace with any non conductive TIM. and rma it out...
 
besides it only voids warranty if EVGA it self can determine you have used liquid metal and its because of it your gpu is dead.
