Me too.

Well I'll load the GPU for 24 hours and then see if anything changes...

I did, I cleaned it off with ArtiClean. The TIM residue on the square surrounding the middle diamond is residue that was stuck underneath a plastic cover thing that XFX apparently glued onto the heatsink. It was there already so I didn't bother removing it to clean it.

I was told to apply slightly more TIM on a GPU. Also the IC Diamond website recommends applying slightly more TIM than normal since it is so thick.

wait, you're using this on your GPU.

It's going to need longer to cure. The thing is you're not going to be able to get the PSI needed to get it under enough pressure to cure in the time it says on the tube.

Yeah, I'm applying this on my XFX 5850.

Did I apply too much?

I'll let it cure for 24 hours. Should I be loading my GPU during that time?

just run it under what your normal usage would be for a few days. i usually give mine about 72hrs before i make a decision on if it was a good seat or not. for the diamond you used the right amount of paste.

Update: it's been 12 hours since I applied the TIM and the delta load temp has decreased by two degrees. Still not very impressed, but I'll give it a few more days.

If anyone is interested, here are pictures of XFX's TIM application.
