Default NVSilencer 5 6800 ultra help please.

I just installed this heatsink.. and now when I start my comp..my card is at 93 degrees celsius.. scared the living bajeezus out of me.. and ontop of this.. the fans are spinning. What could be wrong? Do I need to increase fan speed? If so how?

Make sure the thing is making good contact with the GPU. More times than not I've heard of people coming back, realizing it wasn't sitting good on the GPU and making a nice firm contact and then after that having really good temps

thick layer? you don't want a thick layer, because then it won't cool the gpu

remove some of that thermal paste and see what temps you get

Check your PM's, I responded. I know it is not ideal, but I did have to go fairly think on the AS5 in order to get sufficient contact. Also, see previous thread here .

Again, this was kind of a cheap fix and I know it is not ideal, but my temps are good now and I am not about to mess with it now. Hopefully it works for you as well. I am sure your not in the mood to break out a file and start attacking the thing
