Hmm, the store doesn't have my card in sale so I'm assuming this will be a 3 week long wait. Well, we'll see. Hopefully they give me a new card or atleast repair mine.

You really shouldn't use tissue to wipe off the tim, It can leave a lot of crap behind, Use some small cotton balls or q tips and then use a coffee filter to finish it all up. coffee filters will not leave any residue. thumb.gif

Have you tried spreading the tim out iv got the best results spreading tim so it covers the entire gpu core.

Ok, I'll try using cotton balls and qtips. +rep

I've tried that but all the tim would just go all over the place and be squeezed out. The TIM would be spread out evenly but once I put the cooler on, the TIM would just go everywhere and all that's left on the core is just a thin layer of paste.

Proper assembly requires pressure be applied to the heatsink base as the screws are bolted. You shouldn'talso have used any unnamed paste imo, AMD doesn't require custom application on that part when compared with intel as far as their standards go.
What else, you could be damaging the gpu. You need to apply evenly, spreading a thin layer on every corner. My 6600gt didn't recover the BSOD's after the Arctic Silver 5 paste dried and lost conductivity at one corner of the gpu chip.
Even if you were successful, you would likely be suffering from memory vrm pad disintegration, anyway. They were single use only on my 4890-5770. I have learned my lesson and haven't disintegrated the 6870.

Yup, just use the grain of rice technique in the center of the GPU. the cooler will do the spreading for you. Let us know how the RMA goes

Your likely using too much. TIM is only meant to allow better heat transfer, by filling in the tiny dents and holes between the IHS and cooler. Too much and it will actually hinder heat transfer. You want a very tiny amount, which is why people say to use a dot the size of a grain of rice, so when it spreads, it will be VERY thin.

If your applying the cooler and TIM is oozing out the sides, your using way too much TIM in the first place...

The method I used to to screw my heatsink on is by securing one side of the heatsink down. Not completely down just enough so it doesn't move. Then I precede to screwing on the opposite side. Correct me if I'm wrong but is this the correct way to screw on the heatsink? Well, I know that using unnamed paste is wrong, but I've tested on my CPU and the temperature was fine. Memory VRM pad disntegration, hopefully it isn't because the only screws I've loosen was the 4 heatsink core screws. I'll check anyways. +rep

Yeh, that was the exact method I've used in the first place, but it kept overheating so I've tried to use the amount that was on there before I did anything. But it ended up oozing out and when I tried to clean them, it ended up on the resistors.
