Why do you insist on using TIM?

As others have pointed out, the gaps are too big, you'll get worse performance. Not only that, with the heavy Accelero, your card will flex, causing even large gaps between backplate and mem/vrm chips.

I like the backplate idea though; I do the same with my cards.

Yeah, seriously, forget about the TIM on the backplate.

Use the thermal pads which are already on there.

If you end up using the twin turbos ramsinks(its worth a try) make sure you clean the chips heavily with a rubber and possibly isopropyl(i did) and apply a ton of pressure to stick them down. Results were ideal on a 6870.

If you use the backplate, assuming its reference, you will probably need to grind down part of the backplate to get the twin turbos heatpipes to fit.
Though you probably know that already.

You sure? I have put a twin turbo on a 5850 using the backplate, and it had to be shaved down where the heatpipes stick out, unless its a better designed backplate now.
