Default ArcticSilver5. the best $6 ever spent.

wow to AS5. i put them on to my evga 7800GTX512 about 2 weeks ago and finally started to show some results. GPU is OCd at 600/1800. it used to hit up to 88c in game like BF2. but now at 80c max. even though the limit of the GPU temp is at 113c, constant 85c+ for 3+ hours straight made it to show some minor artifacts. now i know the temp limit so im going to OC little more and see how it does. ty AS5
