    All thermal paste has curing time. Artic silver 5 has a curing time of 100 hrs. If your temperature is running higher after repaste, my guess is that the original thermal paste was perfectly fine. You probably have to wait after the curing period before you see a drop in temperature.

    The temperature was a bit worse before.
    Can you take a look at the picture I posted.
    Is that the right way/amount of paste or should it be less?

    It almost appears to be too much (line licks a bit thick). Can you post a photo of the spread?
