Zalman FC-ZV9

Hi guys

A few days ago,i purchased a the Zalman FC-ZV9,the top of the line vga cooler from Zalman,for my X1900XT,but im not sure if i installed it right.My temps are still way above 80degrees Celsius,even with the fan at full tilt.Im pretty sure i installed it right,it was quite easy,very simple.The 1 thing i did do,which might be the reason the temps are still so high is that i applied thermal paste on Gpu chipset and the cooler,i hope its that.these temps are higher than when i was using the stock cooler,but its way less noisy.Any advice will be gladly accepted.

Cheers.

I would probably pull it off and look at the contact surface. See if you have an even contact impression in the thermal past.

Usually you only want to put the TP on the GPU and a thin coat at that.

if it has any mushy core protectors I'd remove those and just use your brain(I know ur smart enough to do it!). My thermalright HR03 I put on my 7900GT gave modest idle temps, but under ANY stress shot up 20-40 degrees! I removed it and pulled off the rubber square core protector and just used common sense when to stop tightening. MUCH better now!
