I bet mine wouldn't load >40°c on stock voltages.
How hot is your room?

This is a wee bit higher than the stock volts (1.089v versus 1.100v)

It's currently 22c.

I should also mention that the fan is going at 100%

This is pretty disappointing.

Any idea what could have gone wrong?

I taped a video of myself remounting the heatsink and applying TIM, I'll get it uploaded as soon as I can.
GPU's need a lot more TIM than CPU's and/or could a remount issue.

So with GPUs with an exposed die (like mine), I should use less TIM?

Less tim and spread it across the die. You want a very thin layer. Kinda of like a wax shine.

Edit. GPU's heatsinks don't exert enough pressure to spread properly. I would spread it myself instead of using the rice method.

The reason people say to use less tim on a cpu is because the 4 cores produce the heat. They are centered in the middle on a small area.

GPUs need to be completely covered. Every part of the die produces heat. If you place a small dot in the center and use a little too much, the extra will spill over the sides and there will be no consequences. You won't get higher temps. If you use too little, the outsides won't be covered and you'll get higher temps. Just remove the cooler already and check.

exactly, spread it also, you may not be getting enough pressure on it to spread it evenly, though you would be able to tell when you pull it off.

Sigh, I still don't know what to believe. You're telling me that it's ok if I apply too much because it will spill over and not do any harm, while I'm also being told GPUs need more TIM, and also being told that I applied too much TIM...

Update:
Well I was experiementing and I found that if I reduced the memory clock of GPU2 from 1150 to 300 it lowered GPU1's core temps by 10c.
