Did you use the pea method for applying TIM? AS5 is the best in the market and did you know that AS5 needs a burn-in time of 200hrs for best results. I'm using AS ceramique 2 which is very good, decreased 5-10C on cpu & gpu.

That's not quite true, currently the best on the market is Coollaboratory Liquid Pro/Ultra but since it's 100% metal based I will never recommend it to somebody who is not used to applying thermal paste.

Thanks. Never heard of it(my ignorance) metal based TIM could cause short circuits if applied incorrectly.

That's fine, the company is mostly selling it in Germany and yes that's why I almost never recommend it! :D

@Purshu_Pro : As @Enju mentioned try to check it, the replacement is very expensive if still persist which you don't want as an outcome. Many users posted on many forums regarding this problem and I think its just isolated case.

Well I am happy to say that I have fixed my screen issue by reconnecting the connector as @Enju stated and as @jamescv7 taught. But as the discussions made above, I'm not satisfied with Arctic Silver 5 TP. It takes my computer temperature to 80 again. My average temp is now 55-60:(
So @Koroke San what would u like to say about this?

I think its normal temps(Mine idle's @55C), considering the fact, the room temp is greater than 27C in India right now, Where do you live? Mumbai or Delhi? Have you tried cleaning old paste with Q-tips and re-apply the paste with half of pea size? Also if possible, disable these service to check temp issue is solved:
1.Change startup type of all VMWare Services to manual, SQL writer service, Windows Phone Service(I can't remember the name of the service)
2. Have you compiled native Runtime after installing VS 2015 CE? Just compile it using, ngen eqi /nologo /silent for both x86 and x64 .net frameworks.
