Pros: It helps make the heat go from the heat spreader to the heat sink.
Cons: I cannot think of any.
Other Thoughts: My old HD 5770 had begun to sound like a freakin' tornado. The fan was running at very high RPMs whenever I fired up a game.
I took the Phoenix cooler off and cleaned the dust out of the fins on the heatsink and the fan. I cleaned the old gunk off of the GPU heat spreader and then applied a nice, even, coat of MX-2 to same.
Put the card back together, reinstalled it, fired up FarCry 3, and watched while my temps got no higher than 60c and the fan speed stayed below 45%.
Nice and quiet again! Thanks, MX-2!
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: Got it 4 months ago. No issues at all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Team 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model TG032G0MC24A
Other Thoughts: I purchased two of these card as storage for family members' android devices. This morning, after approximately 4 months, the first of the two failed after a video was recorded to it. The card became corrupted, I guess. No device will recognize the filesystem and Windows wants to format the card.
At first I thought that my family member had done something to the card but all that happened was a video was recorde, the user went to record a second video, and the android device reported that the card was blank.
In the meantime, I await the failure of the other card with dread.
Bottom line: This is a cheap card, not inexpensive, and it is likely to fail within a few months of purchase. Buy something better for a bit more cash and save yourself some heartache.
