does the tube of adhesive state a setup time? if it doesnt maybe leave it 24 hours. im not really shure how long it takes.

i have a tube of adhesive that came with a zalman card cooler that im gonna review and it says to cure for 1 hour at 20c (68f)

I recommend using the Artic alumina instead of the thermal paste included with the Chrome Orb.  If you installed your cooler using the studs and with just thermal compound (not thermal adhesive), then you can use it right away.  That's exactly what I did.  installed the chrome orb with artic alumina compound, used the studs that came with it since the holes are aligned and fit well, slapped the card in, and started raising my core and memory values with NVMAX (which to my surprise, and probably expectedly, I had a higher stable setting).

Here's the link to that:
http://www.nvmax.com/cgi-bin/nvmax.pl?action=download

it's a Tweak Utility program to help you mess around with your Nvidia based video cards.  You can set your video card overclocking values there too.
