    MSI NX8800GT-T2D512E-OC problem

    hi, i bought the MSI nx8800gt from scan sometime back and recently after cleaning it its heating up more than usual. at the moment, its idling at 55 degree celsius(checked with nvidia system monitor). I confirmed whether i had put the cooler back on the card properly, thrice and it seems to be fine. Would scan be able to help me in this regard?

    You say you had the cooler off, did you clean the old thermal paste off and apply new?

    nope. i first took the cooler off the card and then took off the white plastic cover to clean the vents and the fan. then i put them back as they were before. I didnt do anything to the thermal paste.

    If you have taken the cooler off the card including the heatsink ontop of the chip you will need to reapply the thermal paste as you have broken the seal that was present.

    That could have been potentially damaging for your card no? The original thermal paste on VGA cards is likely to be the hard/set variety and the hsf may not even make proper contact again with the die if it gets broken and not cleaned off as it may bunch up.
    I think you are quite fortunate to get only 55c idle!

    Recommend Akasa TIM clean from the air cooling section to clean up old paste (get the worst off first then use the TIM clean). Get one of the thermal pastes and apply a little to the core and spread it out. Then smear a touch onto the sink to where it the core touches it and reassemble carefully. Don't put huge amounts of paste as it will overflow and make a mess, use just enough to cover the surface.
