that would be the paste causing the vacume so there is at least a decent seal.
as someone posted above how are you installing the cooler.
put a small amount of paste on the gpu place the gpu heatsink upside down so the part that meets the gpu is facing up and place the card ontop and ensure you align the 4 stud things on the cooler with the holes. if your putting the hs ontop then moving it to do the screws you could be moving the cooler and ruining the seal
tighten your screws in a x pattern. get one to grip in then do the diagnal corner then the other n other and tighten a bit and move on
so do 1 then 3 then 2 then 4
