burjuvaThen we should change the thermal pads to. Becouse of the ram temp. I can imagen the pads are also one of the cheap fakes
Dash8Q4Look around because not all thermal pads should be 1.0mm, there are some parts that require 0.5mm pads. If you are using the same pads for everything then you might have an uneven sit of the block.In the example photo here, the black thermal pads should be 0.5mm. It's a barrow block but the idea is the same I would think. Look in your block to see what kind of pad you put in those areas(2 places). You may want to swap it to a thinner pad. Cheers.
Dabadger84What have ya'll used to clean off any existing residue from the original thermal pads? I've been having a hard time trying to get that to come off & I don't want to risk damaging any SMDs or other components near the VRAM chips so I haven't really messed with it much... I was originally trying to use a microfiber cleaning cloth with isopropyl alcohol on it, but that didn't seem to work very well
burjuvaHi Kikoman,Could you give us an idea, if you going to change the thermal pad s ... I am curious about the result.
