Default Need Help installing 8800 Ultra cooler

Since i sold my ultra now and not the hr03 plus i have to replace the aftermarket cooler with the original cooler.

I found the screwed and all, but i have a questions.
When i took off the stock cooler , they was this white paste on every one of those heat sinks on the cooler. So do i wipe it off? or leave it on.

What steps should i do to install the stock cooler back? i mainly worried about cleaning, what should be cleaned and where should thermal paste be applied.
Thanks.

Clean all the thermal pads off and anywhere that the stock cooler contacts the card put some AS5 on it.

Sounds like something didnt get set right on the heatsink. If you are getting artifacting then a bsod, i'd assume the card is overheating. What you are describing sounds like what happened on my 9500 pro when the fan died and it was overheating. Shouldnt harm the card, just need to fix the cooler.

the fan turned on though, i was looking at it, and it took a few seconds then it turned on, but my screen looks all...scrambled then bsod after the windows vista loading screen.

ill try pluggig the fan in again....or ill try facing a fanright infront of it...
