I'm surprised my GPU didn't burn out either, if I had ran a game i'm sure it would have burned up since its idle is so high.

AS5 is AS5. it is just a thermal conductive compound designed to increase heat transfer between said chip and its heatsink. it doesn't matter what the chip is.

The site says that you need to store it with the tip facing down incase anything in it like the silver particles settle. The site said putting it in a fridge would help keep it from settling...
