Hi,

no .. use thermal pads on when they are used on the memory and the mosfets. Only replace with AS on the core.

hey guys well yayness on my computers progress i have got my motherboard back - was declared faulty ;D.... anyway i have thrown away the thermal pads and just waiting for the new ones from leftclicks (excepting tomorrow ish) but i really want to use my computer now.... is it possible to use the artic silver instead for like 1 day... or will it simply not cool the gfx at all??

Thanks Ed

arctic silver paste is just that: paste. it's not designed to hold the heatsink on, just to provide a thermally conductive medium to interface the heatsink, and the heat source.

the thermal pads are designed to hold the heatsink on too.

if you use just the Arctic silver, you run the risk of the heatsink falling off (and another rma scam ;)).

i understand you must have a Twinplex and separate heatsinks for the memory? or do you have the waterblock specifically for the 6800gt? if the latter, i'd personally use Arctic silver on the memory chips too, as the waterblock is held on with the plastic screws, hence you don't have to worry about it falling off!

what is it?

what has it fallen off of?

seeing as you have the aquaqrafx 6800 cooler, i'd definately use arctic silver on all the contact points (GPU and Memory chips) as it has better thermal conductivity than the thermal pads.

try posting a pic of the card, so everyone can see what has fallen off!

trying to decide whether or not you should stick on a "silver plastic 'thing'" that has fallen off "the bottom right" is not easy. ;)

I would suggest you use Ceramique on your ram chips.
