First step in situations like this is to always "assume" you did something wrong and re do it all over again. Take the "human error" out of the equation. Good call on re-seating and such.
Also... What TIM are you using? If you used the stock, try to get a better quality TIM just for giggles and assured improved heat transfer. The stock TIM (if applied properly) would bring your temps down anyway but while your at it, if re-seating works, you could help improve the temps even more. Few $$$ for a degree or two less temp on your CPU is worth it in my opinion.
Tap the rad while running to make sure all of the bubbles are out. After reading several posts and seeing the pictures, I decided to externally mount on the rear. I want all that air to rise within the rad over to the outlet port. I may be overreacting by saying that top mount will just make it harder to get the bubbles out but when I saw a pix with the rad facing down I said "Hmmm... air rises within a liquid. if the ports are facing down, could I be trapping the air inside the rad?" BUT AGAIN, THAT'S JUST ME THINKING.
Check all your tubing. Any kink's or bends? You may feel that a certain bend is not going to affect anything but in the small world of that pump, it could mean a lot.
