Thats alot of paste. I'm getting really good results with a Zalman waterblock and a grain of rice size dab on the GPU. I'm not familiar with the Silencers, but a pinky size dab would begin to hamper cooling. With Artic Silver less is more in most cases. You want an evenly spread layer, really thin, almost transparent.
