I'm running 0.9750 vcore

GJ on the specs What case and how many fans?
Like everyone else stated a reseat and reapplication of AS5 is where you should start.
Also what's your ambient room temperature?

Somethings not right and if you run it on long with those temps you won't have a processor.

Try reseating that stock heatsink.

+1 to reseating the heatsink. I used the intel stock cooler for half a year, temps never went above 45C even at load, and they were like 39 at idle.
I remember I once bought AS5 compound, because I read it was an awesome thing for cooler cpu. So, I put some on my heatsink, and put it back. Temps jumped up to about 55c. It seems what I did was I put too much compound on it, and it actually did more bad than good. So, I took out the hs again, swiped of the extra compound, pushed it onto and around the cpu a few times to spread the compound better, and my temps went back to 38c.

So, my suggestion would be to see if there're problems with your compound on the heatsink. Maybe, there's too much of it on one side of the heatsink, and too little on the other side, which causes an extremely poor contact with the cpu.

Right then ive taken the Cooler off and put it back on but i busted one of the little white plastic forks that seat the cooler tight into the mobo....anyway loaded it up and it shut off i guess the temp caused a shut down.

Will try to seat it tight again but if not gonna leave it until i recieve a new cooler.Any recommendations?

Ambient room temp is 80F about 25C.

I recommend using a microfiber cloth to wipe it off, they are really good at getting the gunk off. You can pick some up at a glasses care or auto care store.

I've also moistened the cloth with 50% alcohol for cleaning my IHS to make sure I got all of thermal paste off, but before I recommend that, can someone else confirm that it can't cause any damage to the processor?
