Replacing thermal compound (and stickers) on an Asus R9 290 Direct CU II (was running at 94c in valley)

As the title states, I replaced the TIM on my GPU today, heres some pics! If you want to see the full album click here.


EDIT: Doing so dropped my temps my about 8c success!


I have done this to all of my graphics cards and delided my 3770k.  I saw lower temps for all of them so its  worth the small investment to do this.

And breaking the warranty :(

Very nice! :)

Warranty......... That is just another word for a jail time with the hardware you own.
