Personally I recommend trying to use the pads that are going to come on the 580.

Heres a pic showing how small the vregs are. Did you take the shroud off yet? Did you get a heatsink??
Oh wow yeah those are really small. Wait when he said ram I assumed he meant system ram not the ramchips on the board. Im sort of confused now. I know to use tim on the main chip, but what about all the little vram chips? Can I use paste on those?

I have only had it in and tested it stock for a bit to make sure it wasn't doa. I'll be taking it apart tonight.

I know you have EK, so I'm not sure how it works for them. But I my card this is all the areas that needed Pads. On my block it said I can use tim on the vregs, which is the ones marked "2". But not on the ram (the ones marked with a "1".

I believe the other poster was talking about the cards ram, not system ram. Again which is marked "1"




Heres a pic I took from the install manual for the EK-FC580, not sure if its your exact block but I'm sure its very similar. Your block has even more areas that need pads. I personally would not want to put tim on all those areas of the card. You would have a pretty big mess on your hands. But its your card.




Heres the link for the manual I used. It shows the thickness of all the pads you need. They sell them at sidewinder etc but it will cost you $20 easy to get 3 different sizes.

Again the 580 will have pads already on most of those spots except I think #2 on the second pic.

The attached image (see below) shows the pad locations from the factory EVGA cooling fan I removed from my GTX 580 (Reference design). As a note, the Koolance kit came with two thickness of thermal pads stating to use the thicker pad if necessary to ensure you get thermal contact on those pad locations (as shown on the image above).

Personally, I would only use TIM on the GPU itself.
