Default Tuniq tower question.

The tuniq tower has a thing that has to go on the back side of the mobo, and it's sticky, lol. I first had it on my first 680i se before i had to RMA it. I luckily rememberd to peel it off before i RMA'd it and although it doesnt have the sticky stuff on it anymore i thought it would be fine for my new mobo.

Now i think it might be the cause of my kind of not so great temperatures, maybe it's not.

I just want to know, am i suppoused to do something with the tuniq when changing out mobos? because im planning on another mobo switch, this time to a 780i.

I never even bothered using the 2sided tape on my TRUE, the only reason to use the tape is if you arent dextrous enough to mount it while holding the backplate in place.
