Default Thermal pads oozing grease

So i was monitoring my temps on the videocard yesterday and found that the VRM temps were pretty high. So I dismantled it only to find that it was drenched in some sort of clear grease. The grease seems to come from the grey thermal pads that are usually included waterblocks and such.

Does anyone know what type of thermal pads that doesn't have this problem?

I've used this with much success. just check the block clearence on the VRM... sometimes 0.5 mm isn't thick enough.
