Owners of the MSI GT 1030 2GH LP OC... has anyone removed the stock HS, cleaned off the TIM and replaced it with something like Arctic Silver 5 or the like?

I own a msi gt1030 (passive) but i never have change they paste on it. I have change on other gpus like 780, 980, 980ti, and 1080.

It's recommended to use a none capacitive nor conductive, so as5 shouldn't be used, get arctic cooling mx4 or artic ceramique2, both are safer to use on a GPU.

Btw why do you want to change it?

Thanks for the info. I will see how the temps track for a week or so and see if it's worth removing the HS and replacing the TIM. Just wanted to see what others have to say/experiences.

I dont think its worth it, either way the 1030 is a low end gpu, while it can do some light gaming its not meant for it, its more a entry level gpu, as long as you have some airflow the gpu will be fine, no need for upgrading the paste nor i think you will gain much, in the past i have changed the paste more because i have upgraded to Accelero III/IV or MK26 or return them back to the original cooler, but i personally never change paste on the gpu unless i need to.
