Thread Starter 
I reseated once again and now I'm having even better temps.



I think I'm going to try it one more time.

I don't think I was applying enough thermal compound.

What is the best way to put it on?

These temps still seem a bit high, and I might just RMA the card because the thermal pads on the inside are like crumbling off.

I would have sent the card in for an rma. Who knows that could be a sign of something to come. There is no good reason for there to be that large of a difference in temperature across different points on the gpu die.
