What paste? some are conductive, some are not..
Is the GPU in the system and running right now?
Normally you dont put paste on the VRMs.. pads are enough
I hope you didnt put too much on? and you remembered to remove the plastic film from BOTH sides of the pads?

Probably best to stick to the pads.
