    Those aren't bad temps for the card you have. I would probably just take it out and give it a nice blow of air to clean out the dust and should be good..

My MSI cards, you can remove the heatsink and no could have ever known, Same with my Gigabyte cards, while my PNY card, it does and once the heatsink is removed you can tell that it has been tampered with which voids warranty. So my PNY GTX670 is no longer under warranty due to me adding a water block. A small price you pay for watercooling.

    XFX use to allow the same, but they have since changed that policy and now if you tamper with the heatsink, it will void the warranty. which is why I have stopped buying XFX. while I use to recommend them. They have since changed allot of things I use to like about them. Plus, XFX doesn't make any ref. design cards anymore, so that is a even larger no no for me..

    EVGA is a large one that allows you to remove the heatsink without damaging the warranty. while they will inspect for other damages, EVGA is really good about warranty. And since most of the cards they produce allow for water cooling, it's pretty common to them so they don't have that restriction. Which is why so many buy from them and stick to them.. its the piece of mind you get for paying a smaller premium price.
    So my MSI 660 TI's have the "void if removed sticker", can i remove the heatsink and apply new paste?

    Jim. your cards temps are normal, there's no need to replace the TIM. James, your cards are not that old, why do you want to replace the TIM ?

    if it does, I wouldn't do it unless you really need to.. thats strange that your's does and my MSI GTX660 doesnt. I didn't pay attention when I installed the GTX650ti boost if it had it, but if it did, I wouldn't be surprises.

    May I suggest a TIM? The Noctua NT-H1 is supposed to be epic!
    Like Artic Silver MX5, but non-conductive
