Default Re: GTX 295 getting very hot

Ive been having these issues as well with my card (XFX 295) running at about 105-110c and then the graphics driver resets. ive got good airflow through my system with 6 fans sucking and blowing in the right direction. Ive tried blowing as much dust out of the card but after reading around i decided my best option was to strip the card down to put new thermal paste on the cores. Unfortunately the thermal pads on the ram chips got damaged when seperated from the heatsink. Does anyone know where i can get new pads or if the screws will compress the card to the heatsink enough for thermal paste (Arctic MX-3) to make contact?

Am getting quite worried that i may have broken my GFX card :S
