  1. 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?

    Hi Hang,
    are you speaking of the GPU memory? or the ram modules? Ram is designed to run at relatively high temps ( in most cases 85C) you can buy Ram fan sets, but they can be noisy and can have interference problems. the best thing you can do is have goos case airflow. what makes you think it is running beyond spec?

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. Now i am using the AMD HD 6970 VGA card with a non-stock cooler. Actually i want to attach my heatsink on the the VGA RAM, and i am looking for the product that can transfer the heat to the heatsink and also can have a sticky function that stick the heatsink onto the RAM. But i heard someone said thermal tape is too sticky which will lead to peel off the VGA RAM together with the heatsink, the the VGA card was dealth.

    ARTIC G-1 is a thermal glue that has higher heat dissipation rates than thermal pad and easier removal than thermal tape.
    Hopes that help!
