Next, install the small self adhesive heatsinks that were provided in the inventory.
Then on the underside of the heatsink, install the small thermal pad at the very tip as shown in the picture.
Now to install the new cooler to the video card. When the cooler is applied to the video card, it’s good practice to move the heat sink back and forth slightly to allow the heat sink paste to spread more evenly over the surface of the GPU. This also helps to dispel any air that may be trapped in the paste.
Next, we’ll have to install the machine screws to secure the cooler to the video card. The machine screws come with plastic isolating washers that will help to prevent a short circuit on the board. Each screw should be carefully installed being sure not to over-tighten them. There are seven screws to install.
All that’s left is to do, is install the video card into the system and plug in the molex connector for fan power. Don’t forget to plug in the power for the card itself and plug in your monitor or screen.
That’s it for the installation and it wasn’t really that bad. I am sure you were expecting it to be a little more complicated than that. I’m sure you are interested to see how much extra cooling the TMG ND5 will actually deliver. Let’s do some testing to find out.
