Ball Bearing sized drop in the middle, either let the heatsink spread it, or use a sandwich bag. Not too thick. Don't touch it!
Just out of interest, why hasn't it exploded?

Im still leaning towards the seating issue. But if what pauldovi said was true, and your heatsink doesnt bolt down very tight, you might be resting on a blanket of paste. BTW who built the system? Also you might have to take the board out to adjust the heatsink, but then again you might not, I dont know how that HS mounts but the Big Typhoon was kinda a pain but well work the effort.

I bought all the piece and built it myself... and yes... it was the first time i did it. I was extremely meticulous while doing it however... it's not really like me to "inproperly" install something but I'll try reseating it as soon as my bro brings me my AS5.

I had trouble insering my cpu however... as I said I had never built a computer before and I didn't know you had to apply that much strengh to close the mobo cpu "box" with the clip. I went to my local computer store to get help regarding this and some stupid technician tried to insert the cpu upside down!!!! He touched the connectors underneath with his big old greasy fingers. I was pissed and almost punched him in the face but all I did was saying is "what are u doin man" since I'm polite .

Could that be the reason? If yes, is there a way to clean connectors underneath (alcool)?

Why would you open a second post. That is unecessary, and an Admin should close this post at once.

You were already instructed on how to fix the problem. Remove your heatsink, clean it and the processor off. Apply a BB size of AS5 and spread it around with your hand in a ziplock bag. Until you do that, you have no reason to open another thread.

wow! All i wanted is additional infos b4 i do so man.

I wanted to know is it was advised to remove the mobo b4 reseating the heatsink and also if it was better to spreak as5 myself or let pressure do it. Dude even if I posted a reply asking for those infos in a old threat it's far from sure I would have had answers. No?

dude
take off the heatsink
clean it AND the cpu
put a dot of paste in the middle, and a THIN spreading round the middle/outside

use your heatsink to spread it around evenly, you should see your CPU's metal a little bit, in some places

then get the Heatskink "fingernail tight" but im not sure if that easy to check
just make sure its on tight enough
