There isn't anything unsafe about applying new thermal compound.

In order to properly apply thermal paste: apply a pea sized drop of TIM to the centre of the CPU. It's all you need. You may see either an increase or decrease in temps, if you see a significant increase, try re-setting the heatsink.

Don't smudge, or smear around as this may cause air pockets.

67 degrees is not hot for a GPU
You may drop a few degrees, Its not going to be dramatic.

Just out of curiosity, did you even try searching?

Video cards have CPU's now? When'd they get gimp'd LOL j/p xD

Generally speaking you'll always get better temps from laying down your own paste, just clean the old stuff off REALLY good.

i have about a half sirenge of as5 lieing around and i just wanted to know. i have two diamond multimedia 5770 with the artc cooling cooler on it they are running 930/1300. so im gonna guess i would see a 5 to 8 degrees decrease in temps. i know 67 is not alot but i want to run the fans a bit quieter.
