Well, is the fan working at all?

Are you manually controlling the fan?

Check that the pads aren't too think, and preventing the gpu core from making good contact with the heatsink. So pull the heatsink off and check if the thermal paste has been spread out or if it still in a ball or line like how you applied it.

Just reapply, your wasting $.50 on some thermal paste, better then toasting hundreds in graphics card.
