You'd have plenty to spare from one tube. You just need to put a very thin covering over the gpu core. Remember that using too much TIM will increase temps. ;)

Oh, also...

On the new AC silencer 5 rev 2's, they spray the base of the heatsink with lacquer, which can have a big impact on temps. I'd recommend removing it with some very fine sandpaper where it will make contact with the gpu. Start off with 600 grit, and finish with 1000 grit or finer.

well, unfortunately I can't find one anywhere for purchase. It's discontinued on all websites but one. The one website doesn't ship outside of greater Vancouver, and I'm in the US

Have you checked ebay?I sold mine there a couple months ago.Their well made and carry a 6 year warranty I think so buying a used one is not a big risk.Let me check around for one I know their hard to find.

Yes, I've checked ebay. The only Silencer 5 was an NVIDIA. I've began checking the list of dealers but I don't expect to find any since the product is discontinued. I'll continue checking once I get home and have more time. Thanks for the site though, I might try contacting some of the distributors...although since it's discontinued that may be useless. Thanks for all the help though.
And the Kingston website doesn't have a way to pay online and the store is located in Canada, so unless I'm very desperate, I'm afraid to do a phone order with that company. No telling what I'll get...or wont get.
