haha, that's kind of odd. the gtx was a mega heater usually. all though if you had an hr03 on it, it would make sense that it's cooler. stock hsf's are never very good..

yeah you'd drop a couple degrees. might just put a new hsf on it though. if you're gonna put new thermal paste on might as well put a proper hsf on it too.

actually, you're in luck, the HR-03 RevA will fit on the 5770.
