If you know what you are doing when you're spreading the paste, it'll be fine. Just be careful. Have you tried Catalyst Control Center yet?

Sweet, dude! I'm going to see how much more heat I can displace with this puppy without prepping my video card's fan for T-minus 5 'till takeoff.

EDIT: Hmm...no dice with rivatuner, that fix the programmer posted still crashes the program.

Hardmodding the speed at 100% dropped my load temps 40C
