Glad you figured it out. I just saw this thread and your comment above.
If anything, you want your heatsinks to be HOTTER after upgrading your thermal compound. This means that the compound is MORE effective in bringing the heat AWAY from the CPU and dissipating it over a larger surface (the heatsink).
thanks for the reply.
after playing for about 4 hours or so it started freezing on me every 5 minutes and picture going jaggy (heiroglipics or whatever you call them)
so after thinking what the hell have i done ive screwed it up i took of the gpu heatsink, cleaned the gpu, reapplied as5 and started playing again all was good and has been til now :touch wood:
before i did the 12v fan mod i noticed the heatsinks alot hotter and my 1st thought was oh dear, that cant be good but i thought later that if the heatsinks were hot then maybe that is better as it would be getting the heat away.
