    Too much paste on those inductors there which also should not be using paste at all but a pad :p

    Weirdly enough that paste made 0 contact with the heatsink. Point was to bring the gap down to as little as possible. End of the day they dont really need as much cooling as the MOSFETs.

    Jesus he messed up bad.
    First and major mistake. Assuming that that GPU shroud will protect against LM.
    There are a lot of components under that shroud.

    I cry when I see something like this. @Donald@HIDevolution and HID don't put liquid metal on the GPU, even they are good with it and do it corect. The Customers will try to do exactly the same as the reseller when they re-paste. And let the reseller take the blame if they screew up.

    There is a reason they dont do it.
    The only way to use Liquid Metal with GPU's and be safe is to remove the default shroud, cover with electrical tape and then use a shim.

    You guys are really worrying me now. My paste job was so thin it barely covered the dies and basically didn't even get fully to the edge. Any excess metal I brushed onto the copper heatsink. Barely had enough to be honest but I'm now worried cos I used it on the CPU and GPU. I did it Sunday and have been using it without issue but I'm worried and very tempted to open it and remove the LM and put GC extreme back in.

    Both my chips looked like this if not a thinner application. It was literally brushing away if I tried to spread it any more.

    If its super thin, then you should be ok. Did you cover the surrounding areas?
