Game Stuttering after afternarket fan install

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

So, as the title implys, after installing an arctic accelero twin turbo ii on my rx 480, my temps have sky rocket and my games start stuttering even with 60+ fps. i have no clue why and i hope im sure i installed everything right. plz help much better pc users. thanks for reading, take care

EDIT: i forgot that one of the small heatsinks fell off and i was running the gpu without it for 12 hours more or less both under load and idle. i dont know what part it was but if that couldve affected it please let me know

From this picture, my first thought was that it's more likely that you had inadequate mounting pressure on your GPU die, that layer of thermal paste looks much too thick to have been properly squished out under adequate pressure.

You don't want to try and push the die through the PCB with the cooler pressure, but you want as little TIM as possible between the cooler and the die. The TIM is there to fill the microscopic irregularities that are always going to be present no matter how much you lap a surface.
