I just want to show my mod on my 5870's may someone find it useful.
Do not replicate my mod unless you know what you doing is may not for your nerves!
I don't encourage anyone to do anything, if you follow my work you do it at your own risk!
Used tools and components :
1, 0.5 mm aluminum sheet for the memory instead of the 1 mm thick thermal pads.
2, 0.5 mm plastic sheet for the GPU die just to be safe! the 5870's don't have metal frame mounted onto it like 4870's.
3, 3M 467MP adhesive (double side tape)
4, water paper (200u particle size) to polish the GPU cooling block (missed the pics ) when is looks a mirror is good
5, AS thermal compound for anything
6, really sharp blade to cut the aluminum sheet, make sore is not resemble a geo map (and patience)
personally i recommend to polish the edges of the cutting and wash them, to prevent metal particles lurking around inside the laptop not healthy...
1st, cut out from the aluminium sheet 4x, 550 mm x 150 mm pice's this goes onto the memory...
2nd, cut out from the plastic sheet 4x, 5 mm x 5 mm pice's and halve them to make little triangles this is for the GPU
3rd, stick the adhesive onto the little triangles then stick it onto the GPU on each corner.
4th, remove the cooling unit from the card and clean with IPA, than polish up the middle copper surface... until is more shiny
the original is awful because... not necessarily need to sit on the gpu properly (thanks for the thick thermal paste).
5th, make little balls of AS on each RAM chip then put the aluminium sheet onto it (little cicle moves), then make another little drops of AS on the top.
Do the same to the GPU die. not need a big ball is should be sit on it just perfectly.
Just took me 6 hours to workout anything correctly ,cutting , polishing ,gluing ,mounting. I know, a lot of guide out there what, and how to do to make that monster quiet
