a corsair a70 would perform the same if not better than my corsair h60. not to mention it's hot here in manila and roomtemps is about 30+ degrees celcius. i really think you need to reseat your cooler. how did you install the tim btw? less is more. just apply tim at the middle of the cpu. size of a grain of rice. you don't need to spread it. i found out this is the best method for our chip

you over applied the tim. that's ok coz you're reading the manual. I remember years ago when it was also my first time installing an aftermarket cooler I used all the tim that came with it so a friend of mine had to clean up my motherboard lol

DO NOT USE THE DOT METHOD ON THE A70! The A70 is a direct pipe cooler so when you put the DOT the TIM spreads into the crevices of the connecting pipes. Use two very thin lines about 3 CM long in the crevices. 1 each crevice. It'll spread better rather than the dot because the DOT was created for a flat surface with no crevices.

Well, it as been 35 min and prime95 on blend mode didn't crash. i'm at 1.275 Vcore and 1.26 vtt. Max temps was 83 on the 1st cpu, but ine avg, they are all between 76-81C. I'll try the proposed method to apply the thermal paste tonight and i'll post back the result. oh, I forgot to say I was running on level 2 llc, which makes the voltage stay higher. In CPU-Z, it shows 1.264 compared to 1.275 in BIOS

***EDIT***

It ran an hour no prob on blend, but I had to leave for school and I prefer running it when I can monitor the temps
