I have to say I am really not too impressed with the performance it offers for what I paid. I paid close to $110 and it keeps the 2600k around 75-78 C for 4.5 with 1.375v.
Check the seating of your block. You may want to remove the block, apply some fresh TIM and reseat the block. Ensure that you have equal pressure applied to all four mounting screws. Obviously, as equal as hand tightening screws will allow you. Try to count the approximate number of screw turns you make on each. Many times, poor performance with these has a lot to do with how they are seated on the processor.
When I rebuilt my system I had a dramatic increase in temps. I had to reseat the block, with new TIM and I was back to normal again.
