    I disagree,

    When trying to install a faulty eiswolf to my 56, i then had to put the stock cooler back, but with new tim and some extra pads under the backplate left over from the eiswolf install.
    I now never get more than 80.C hotspot when under load and my temps stay about 10.C cooler on the core and hbm which means less noise from the fan.

    Can anybody confirm whether PowerColor are okay for stock cooler removal, simply for a thermal paste change (and then put the stock cooler back on)? Card purchased from OCUK too, listed as with a 3 year warranty.
