The way I applied the thermal paste, I only applied on the CPU and smoothed it out evenly. I didn't put it on the heatsink side cause I thought it'd be too much but I guess I need to fill those grooves. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll give it a go.
It worth to try but don't expect to much !
IMO -> your idle temps leads to the point that in the BIOS PMW is enabled for CPU fan -> check is it on turbo and do the fan reach max RPM under load (by disabling this feature you will get maximum of your cooler as well as noise from fan). Other than that check air flow in case -> the way of fresh air to cpu fan must to be free (also check filters in case for dust). CPU fan should push air trough heat-spreader /heatsink in the way of rear case fan (if you have one, if not can help if you add one 120mm fan) - this is just some basics in case you missed something thumb.gif

Thanks, could you clarify the BIOS thing for me. I have a Gigabyte Z68 motherboard. I haven't touched anything in BIOS and wasn't aware I might have to if I get a new fan/heatsink. The case is fairly open, the front filters are okay and I put the Hyper 212+ to blow out the rear so there's good airflow throughout the case. But I'll have to retry the bios and thermal paste stuff.

I forgot to add, there's no fan for intake in the front of my case. I went budget build and so there are holes and vents in the front but no fan. There is a 120mm fan blowing hot air out the rear, and another one blowing out the top. The PSU is on the bottom with the fan on top. I'm not sure if adding a case fan to bring in cooler air in the front will be a factor though.

I think the only thing that needs to be done is to redo the thermal paste application in the 3rd method shown below:

 

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=150&Itemid=62&limit=1&limitstart=5

 

I mean, they found that this gave them the best results, so I figure that it should be the same for almost everyone.  Not only that, but you did say that you didn't put thermal paste in between the exposed heatpipes before applying the rest of the paste, and that's something that must be done with these HDT heatsinks.  If you don't do it, then your temps will always be much higher than they otherwise would be.

 

So, redo it when you can and then we'll go from there.  I mean, let's keep it simple.
