I demonstrate why it’s so important to clean and restore your graphics card and apply new thermal paste to the GPU, especially when your graphics card is used and older than 5 years.
I purchased a used AMD HD 6970 for cheap, the seller mentioned that the card gets very hot tends to thermal throttle. I took the risk in buying it as I was confident that the cooler was dirty and the thermal paste on the GPU has dried out.
I have experienced impressive results, however I would like to stress that the ambient temperature was low at 18.5 C and I expect the temperatures to increase during warmer days.
