Thermalpaste can take days even weeks to cure, I know AS5 takes like two weeks to cure on my pc because it isn't on all day. What sort of case have you got? If the gfx card gets up to say 60-70c then obviously its having trouble shedding that heat, that heat will then increase your case temps and your CPU temps.
i will try some other thermalpaste, how about "OCZ FREEZE Thermal Paste"? or would you recommend arctic silver?
i know the input fans are really weak and i want to get new ones but even if the case temps are a bit high it should not have such a huge impact on the cpu since its on the water cooler... or am i wrong about that?
here is a pic of the case so you get a better idea what could be the problem....
and part of the water cooling system which i cleaned a short time ago
