I lowered the TDP to 360w GM204Modded.zip 136k .zip file

Is "silver grease"™ a conductive thermal paste that can be used?

Here. Copy the settings from the power table in this bios, to the bios you're using and try it again. This is what I ended up with on my 970 FTWs after a LOT of flashing and testing. Just the power table...the voltage and clocks from the other tables likely won't work for you. Mine were on water, and excellent cards.

I'm guessing this is a pretty low ASIC card? Below 70%?

74.9% ASIC quality IIRC....I RMA'd this card a couple days ago...biggest piece of crap card I've ever owned. I bought the card local from a guy who said he received it through RMA process for his 780. So it was probably a "recertified" card that had been returned once already

I run 1440p, but the fact that it thermal throttled below it's factory spec'd boost clock, with all OC and power settings set to default told me something was wrong. It just ran too hot, and the power restrictions really blow. I hope they send back a P4-2976-78 or 3XXX model with the updated heat sink design
