Re:GTX 580 back plate thermal pad leaking
I think that's normal. I had the backplate on my gtx 260 and im planning to buy a backplate if i buy either gtx 570 or gtx 580.
The backplate of the gtx 260 had a separate thermal pad and i was able to remove it from both the card and the backplate. when i was cleaning mine had also that oily stuff and i im still not sure what is it.
