Yea the blend test uses a weaker test at first to test more ram, then switch over to more CPU, and goes back and forth.

Your heatsink is installed wrong or you applied thermal paste wrong. Try reseating and judge how the thermal paste was spread. There should be no extra and it should cover most of the CPU after it was spread by the heatsink.

You want a very thin line. I'm assuming you are using AS5.

You can also just select the *small fft* test to go straight the hardest test for CPUs. Blend should be used for ultimate stability testing, not mid-OC testing

i am using AS5 but i didnt apply it the same way they show in that guide. I just applied about a rice grain worth on the middle. Could that really make a difference? Also there is a possibility that i have air bubbles.

You should use the line method for quad cores. (Keep a close eye on the little arrow in the corner, its important you get the line going in the right direction).

Judging by your temps, its not only a bad application of thermal paste, but it seems like your heatsink isn't even touching (or barely touching) your processor. Make sure there are no contact issues with other things on your board that could cause it to be lifted up a bit when you reapply paste.

When you remove the heatsink, that dot should be spread out all around the processor, if its not something is stopping your heatsink from going down all the way.

I second the questionable contact theory. Probably wasnt on tight or even

Remove, clean both surfaces, reapply as directed above, secure the heatsink properly and fire that puppy up. Also make sure your fan isn't being limited in your BIOS.
