Okay here, watch this video
to get an idea of the process and steps involved. So remove the plastic shroud (held on by about 8-10 screws around the edges as shown) to get to the copper vapor chamber (the big heatsinky looking thing), then remove the copper vapor chamber by undoing the 4 screws at each corner of the GPU core in the back, then clean the old thermal paste off with rubbing alcohol, and apply between a grain of rice and pea sized amount to the center of the GPU core, then put the big heatsinky thing on it and put it all back together by following those steps in reverse. That's it.
Somebody should have been able to tell you how to do that before this got to a 70 posts thread, that was quite a fail by those helping you. Do that if you feel comfortable in your abilities enough to do it without any mistakes (if not then your choices are live with it as is or contact EVGA for an RMA) and clean your case at the same time, then post back and see if this is still an issue. Until then this thread does not need to be quite as popular as it has been.

I'm sure you just joking but honestly this should have been easy enough to help him learn how to change the TIM, so if anybody needs to be payed no heed from this point forward it would be the people that have been in this thread for the past hour but couldn't manage to just teach the guy how to change the TIM.Edited by juano - 4/18/12 at 11:34pm
