After a considerable time of usage I decided to reaply some thermal paste on my MSi RTX 2070 Armor (non OC).
The thermal paste choosen was Arctic Silver 5 (just because I already had some) and I'm definitely not satisfied with the results on the GPU. While playing The Witcher 3 I'm getting almost 80° C with fans opperating above 1900 RPM.
For the record, my pc case has decent air circulation.

Does anyone know why is that happening? Should I try another brand? I've read on other forums that Arctic Silver 5 needs 200 hours of cure time to start to show good results but I've also read some people saying that's bs.
I've applied the same thermal paste on my CPU (Ryzen 7 2700x stock) and I'm having good temperatures with it.

I myself will answer my own topic. Apparently I applied a little thermal paste. After applying a little more the temperatures have improved a lot. 68 ° C in Battlefield V during an intense multiplayer match. Now I've learned my lesson.
