Gpu too hot after changing thermal paste

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ahh man the bad luck never leaves me so i did everything as supposed and changed the thermal paste to cooler master master gel pro and cleaned the heatsink and cooler and everything i put a pea size in the middle and that should be more than needed, trying to reduce my gaming temps from 73c max, but it has gone up and now hits a max of 89, thats too much. Reducing clocks and voltage doesnt seem to affect all that much as it still hits that limit then stops rising. (Its the limit on an rx 470) or at least in afterburner thats the limit. What shall i do ? Repaste ? Use more ? Will that change anything ? Different paste to be bought ? Am i missing something ?

remove the screws, clean heatsink and old paste off, apply new paste, clean the chokes and mosphets and whatever else is on there, have i removed ‘thermal pads’ by mistake ? Do they even exst on a rx 470? The cooling pipes are getting hot when the gpu is working btw.

try and tighten the screws because it might not be able to make thermal contact.

it may also be reading off a different sensor on the GPU some make sure all the thermal pads are there.

Make sure all the thermal pads are properly placed and ensure that the screws are not over tightened, doing so will flex the board and make it so that the die doesn't make proper contact with the heat sink. Also see if you have connected all the fan cables properly

73c was perfectly fine, I wouldn't have messed with it.  In the future, maybe leave things alone since you run into issues when you do?

 

I'd redo it and watch a video at the same time making sure each and every step is done 100%.

re-paste the card - it's not making good thermal contact
