Meh, I'd say get either OCZ freeze, or AS5, whichever is easier to get, but don't put it on your GPU until you decide it needs to cool down/you know it works.

LoL You mounted it incorrectly which is why you have higher temperatures. Make sure there are no air bubbles in the paste. And seriously, good luck finding an aftermarket heatsink for your video card. The GTX series is HORRIBLE for aftermarket support. You can use a HR-03GTX which doesn't have sufficient cooling on the vregs or.... you can put it on water. And thats about all your options so far.

And thats exactly why I didn't ask for help from anyone here, because I know that it IS mounted correctly and I've had 2 people who have installed after market heatsinks onto their GPUs to check it out aswell, they both agree it's mounted correctly.

Well, you didn't clean it properly then. Or you broke the temp sensor on the GPU. Core temp will never go up no matter what by changing the paste. Maybe you should reseat and repaste again.

Theres no way to tell that the sink is mounted properly without removing the heatsink and checking the paste. Unless you've done that you cant tell if the mount is on properly or not.

Hell, an elite gaming rig should warrant something exotic, like Gorgonzola or Brie, and no nasty smell. LOL

On thermal pastes, I read a while back that some were saying IC Diamond is now the new king. I haven't researched it thoroughly, but I know Petra Tech carries it.

I'll have to take a look at that stuff. I never heard of it before.

+1 on OCZ Freeze for sure though. That stuff is the best paste i've used yet, definitely better than AS5.

Yeah, Arctic Silver is going to have to come up with a new formula to compete with all the new comers. Even some of the paste that comes with some HSs anymore comes close to AS5.

Like I have 3 times already?

I've removed it lol and checked the paste, I've probably damaged the sensor, but in terms of seating and pasting i've double and tripple checked myself and with others and we all agree its fine. I'm not terribly bothered, just renders gaming almost useless for any length of time and just mean's I wont try and change pastes again, its more hassle then it's worth in my experiance.
