    Hi Everyone,

    Is it OK to use Arctic Silver 5 on a VPU?

    Please excuse my ignorance, as I am still a newbie with PCs.

    1. Intel Pentium 4 3.0C ghz
    2. Gigabyte 5900XT
    3. Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 Pro
    4. Kingmax PC3200 DDR RAM (2 x 256mb on dual channel)
    5. Western Digital 80gb 7200rpm HD (8mb cache)

    Not only can you use it, Id highly recommend it. Just use the same instructions for the vpu as you would a cpu die. Thin Layer, dont goop on anything that could cause a short.

    Dude, you can do it, but be wicked careful. If some of that stuff hits your memory leads (the wires coming out of the memory chips to the board) and bridges them, you're toast if you cant get it out. The signals will jump form lead to lead and fry your card. Watch out, you dont want that to happen. Good luck with it, : peace2: Mista K6

    I'll concur that it can easily be used on VPU/GPU modules as I have done it on several occasions, BUT... Make sure you get a good coating on the chip. If you'll notice, many VPU/GPUs have a concave surface meaning the center is indented. You'll need to make sure to fill this area completely and then have a very smooth layer over the entire surface. This will ensure a good conductivity between the VPU/GPU and the heatsink. :D
