How to change the thermal paste on the graphics card

In this paper, we consider the replacement of the thermal paste on my old , long-suffering the GeForce 8600GT from NVIDIA, which has served for napisana articles on this blog.

To replace the thermal paste on the graphics card , we need:

1. Phillips and flat screwdriver;

2. Thermal grease;

3. Liquid varnish remover or alcohol;

4. Toothbrush or paint brush;

5. Wool or a cotton pad .

In this case, the radiator is mounted on the Board using spring-loaded brackets that we need to withdraw from the hooks with a flat head screwdriver (the fastening places marked on photo ). Instead of the brackets may be spring-loaded bolts, in this case, useful Phillips screwdriver. After mounting figured out, actually remove the radiator and switchable chip fan power from the Board .

The next step is applying thermal paste . To do this, a drop of thermal paste placed in the centre of the chip (roughly) and install the radiator ( not screwed, just pressed it to the chip) . Again rassadina the whole thing and look at the imprint on the chip and the radiator. If the print is uniform, with a clear bead of thermal paste around the perimeter, you can add a bit of pasta in the center of the chip and assemble the whole thing back. If the print is good not, repeat this stage again. If there is a surplus , as in the photo below , (climbs more paste to the perimeter of the print ) , it is advisable to remove . Then you can begin to assemble in reverse order.

PS Before application of the thermal paste, preferably mixed, since upon prolonged storage, it can exfoliate.
