i certainly didn't forget to plug in the pump, i would know. once i was fiddling around in there and knocked the pump's connector loose, the temp shot up so fast i just hard killed my rig at the psu!
i may have used to much paste, more like a lentil than a grain of rice. ShinEtsu is so thick, it's hard to manage. how well does it work if i set it in warm water before applying?

i've thought of trying to re-apply the thermal paste as it was out of the box: a thin layer covering the square center of the HS. that too would require a razorblade.

y'all are right about needing pictures, lemme go buy a razor blade and get to that. i'll post my findings here and we'll solve this together!
