Tuxedo.You should not use conductonaut in combination with aluminium, it's a big hint in the manual.I dont know what the cooler is made of but i wouldn't recommend it.
SajinNot worth the risk imo.
Quad5NyHey 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.
AsploitCould we get an answer from EVGA regarding the material of the coldplate that contacts the GPU die?It wouldn't make sense to use a Gallium-based TIM if the coldplate is made out of Aluminum, but I'm guessing it's the standard nickel-plated copper that everyone else is using?
AsploitMan I really wish I could get a more substantial response than that, because other people are reporting decent results. I have leftover Conductonaut and CLU so if it's a non-zero gain then it seems worth it, so long as it doesn't void Warranty. Do any EVGA officials browse this forum?
Cool GTXI would think liquid metal would prevent putting the card back to stock. Or any electrical short caused by the liquid metal would void the warranty Read the Warranty TERMS - for your regionevga.com/support/warranty/graphics-cards/ Especially - these come to mindProduct condition:This Limited Warranty is conditioned upon proper use of the Product by the Purchaser.

RanmacanadaThis is about as smart as putting your water cooled rig outside in the middle of a Canadian winter in hopes to overclock it some more..
