ATI HD 4800 - Replacing thermal ointment - see Warned !! + Temporary solution


Recommended Posts

Dear users,

There has been a lot of recommendations in this forum for the new ATI series.

There are reports that the thermal ointment of the cream in the manufacturers is problematic, and that replacing it will significantly improve the cooling performance of the card.

Please note that:

1) Replacing the paste requires the dissolution of the cooling body and re-assembling it, which requires experience and not always as simple as it seems or as some of the experienced users in the forum present. CAUTION - You may cause irreversible damage to the card.

2) It is quite easy to spot a mess with the card's cooling body. Keep in mind that you may lose responsibility.

Note that the warming problem can be solved using CCC profiles:
