Wink And loose the guarantee?

High densitiy mining. Getting rigs next week. I just wonder. In the past graphics cards were notoriously crappy with their cooling "elements". How is it now?

Plus, we still loose the guarantee, correct?

They are big and loud. Cooling is not an issue if the case has sufficient airflow.

You may have to manually adjust the fans, because the drivers may think 92C is not a good enough reason to go above 34% fan speed.

I have heard that you can lower stock temps 20-30 degrees... so it would most definitely be "awesome"... whether or not it is "worth it" from a business stand point is up to you. For me it is not. I can buy another card for the cost of two cooling fans... and space is not an issue for me.

20-30 degrees from a TIM change?  No way.  At most 5-7C, and that would only be if the stock stuff was garbage.

While this is true, AS5 will lower temps by 5-7°, multiplied by the number of GPUs. It could add up to a substantial reduction in room heating. I would however, suggest getting AS ceramic if you decide to do this! It is non-conductive, and works *almost* as well.
The application of TIM is Important too! Just a tiny dot in the center of the die will do. Too much, and it will actually insulate more than conduct heat.

Sorry, but that's bullshit. It will not affect the total power dissipation at all, except for maybe the fan spinning at a lower speed and using a couple milliwatts less.

Shocked somebody here studied physics, the law of preservation of energy anyone?
