Default Arctic Accelero Xtreme PLUS II .. please help

Please help me with something. Just bought the Arctic Accelero Xtreme PLUS II VGA cooler for my GTX 580. When I started installing it, I saw that the part of the cooler with thermal paste on it (can't find the correct term right now) doesn't cover the whole card chip. It's smaller. Is that a big issue?
Thanks for your answers...

I always get the die, chip, and core mixed up.. so please correct me if I'm using the wrong terms, but I don't think there would be a problem since the cores are placed in the centre; they don't take up the entire space of the chip. A lot of pre-applied thermal paste for after market coolers don't cover the entire chip, that goes for A.M. CPU coolers as well.
