Check it's mounted correctly. Sounds amateur, but I mounted mine partially on one of the small capacitors that surrounds the socket, it kept half of the base off of the core.
It's easy to do, take a look.

Arctic Silver makes a cleaning solution that, imo, is a waste of money. just go to your local drug store or Wal-Mart and buy a bottle of 90% or higher isopropyl alcohol and use a lint-free cloth. it will clean your CPU and heatsink base very well. the towel i used in the below picture is from my sunglass cleaning kit.

haha.
I get what you mean.

Well, I hope I'm not sounding too negative. But... maybe it cant cool any cooler?

In my experience - there eventually comes a limit to how cool a HSF can keep a CPU - (in X condition/environment).

So my cooler may be outperformed in an airier case (FOR EXAMPLE) by X fancy cooler - BUT.. in my case.
It does the same, OR by comparison, not as well.

There also comes the limit for how cool something can be on air / in a room of X ambient temperature

(just a thought though - see if you can figure it out )

I just lapped my TT-120 and got a nice drop on load temps....used to my load was in the 52-54C area. Now, my load is in the 46-48 area...i REALLY suggest you spend about 8 dollars and buy a lapping kit off of www.easypckits.com and lap both your Tuniq and your processor!!! It's actually pretty easy. I had no idea what lapping was at first until i went HERE. Very nice guide!! Hope this helps you out

Yeah, i hear ya...I'm a bit low on money otherwise i'd have a core 2 now, lol.

I didn't care about lapping my processor as it's getting a bit dated now....and it hasn't ever given me any problems anyway.
