@ Above poster, the H70 should EASILY be able to handle that heatload.
Looks like you were right, a reseat and replacement of the thermal paste was required. I haven't allowed the 4-5 hours curing time, but currently under Prime95 at blend setting it's been running at initially 65-70C on the hottest core (core #1), then about 10 minutes later is running at just less than 65C (63-65C currently). Much cooler than the up to 90C I was getting before!

EDIT: When Prime95 is first started with all 8 tests running it produces a high temperature of 75C, but as the tests start to finish it is lowered. The temperature is still better than what it was before however.

Here's a photo of the inside of the case by the way:


Front of case has two fans which push air into the case.
Side of case (side is currently off) has one fan that pushes air in.
Top of case has one fan that sucks air out.
Rear of case has the H70 which sucks air in.

So far so good, many thanks. I'll update this thread when I have more results.
