Got the AliExpress heatsink!
And same day 1080 pooped . . . can't even test it!!!! GGAAAHHHHHHHH
What happened to your card?
Dang that sucks.
I know! Same day! It started to freeze, but I had to ignore it and work, then mail came by with the package for me, try to turn on the laptop again and it is dead!
Posted a quick question on it before I realized what it was:
If anyone has a cheap 1080 lemme know!
I prefer 1080 because more performance, obviously, but also more heat so I can test temps.
But 1070/2070 would also work.
One thing you can check, since you mentioned you used LM on the GPU, is take the card out and carefully inspect it, maybe clean the whole thing with some isopropyl and a toothbrush.
Ya, I had taken it out and cleaned with hand sanitizer too.
But you made a good point! So I got a new toothbrush and isopropyl and gave it a good scrub. I then also used a bunch of tissues to dab away any residue or anything.
On the actual chip that is mounted to the PCB there is a tiny space under it, and I think previously when I was cleaning and reapplying the LM some went to the side a little and got wiped underneath. I found that if I poured some isopropyl on one side it would help push through, under the chip. There was a decent a mount to clean and got it all cleaned out but it still does the same thing.
I think a the little bit of LM that got wiped under the chip may have caused the issue and now it is permanently fried. I don't know.
There should not be space on the underfill of the chip
Really!? I am fairly sure this is where the issue came from, some LM got in there?
This is what I mean:
Oh the package, how did it get that far out?
