    How exactly do you properly remove the heatsink, put the arctic silver on, and put the hsf back on?

    Do I have to use arctic silver or can I use any thermal compund? For example, I saw some kind of Antec compound (never knew they made compounds), is that good enough?
    If something comes loose such as a HSF it always typically a good practice to remove it and clean it all up and apply new thermal compund. It is best to put Arctic Silver on because it is about the best thermal compound there is. You have to have it there between the HSF and GPU or it will get too hot all the time, also, do not get the knockoffs, they are nowhere near as good.

    Well the NV5 won't do him a lot of good, seeing that he has a Radeon 9800 Pro, and I wouldn't recommend Xoxide unless it has something you can't get at Newegg, which it does, but the Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer line is not one of them.
