Hey guys, I’ve got a problem with using my RAM … I used the thermal tape to attach my heatsink on it yet it’s still very hot. Sigh … seems like my cooler doesn’t cool down the RAM properly. My card was almost ruined when I tried to remove the heatsink. Please help !!! Is there something like a thermal pad that can resolve this problem?

Sorry for the misunderstanding! I mean the RAM on my VGA card - AMD HD 6970 with a non-stock cooler

ARTIC G-1 is a thermal glue that has higher heat dissipation rates than thermal pad and easier removal than thermal tape. Check out [Youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZaef91JiIw&feature=youtube_gdata [/Youtube]
Hope that helps.

It's not glue until you cook it. If you are cooking it, there is something wrong.

I'm sorry, but how do you know that your VRAM is running too hot? When you installed the aftermarket cooler, were you provided with new pads, or did you attempt to re-use those from the stock cooler?
