    I turned on AC and room was cooled to 27C. Thermals was actually good, below 85C with CPU,FPU and GPU stressed at the max. Unfortunately, I was running on battery and it shut itself maybe due to interference from RTSS.

    Too much paste doesn tinterfere with cooling though, its jsut spilling over the side. At least according to some youtube tests.

    All depends on the pressure from HS. And you don't need very much more to see the difference. Of course too little is worse:)
