I hope he did.
You must use TIM anytime you remove and remount a cooler. It's always best to clean off the old and reapply a fresh application each time you remove the cooler.

EDIT: I see where you said you did.

ok change your method. Put one pea sized dot in the middle and then put the heatsink on the chip. Put some pressure manually and rotate the heatsink a bit to help spread it. Then mount the heatsink and screw it down using a x pattern to make sure the heatsink applies pressure evenly. This will then make sure the tim has an even spread over the ihs.

Also as asked before are you on stock voltage?

I saw in your screenie where it showed in CPU-Z that you had 1.28v's going to it. If that's right, voltage won't be an issue BUT don't undervolt it too much. You need to keep it at or around 1.30v's to be sure it's getting enough to run with at the speeds you were running. 0.95v's isn't enough and can actually kill a chip over time.
It's like when trying to start a car with a weak battery - That will fry a starter in no time.

heres a little overview of where i stand right now.

Don't do that
It's really never effective.
Put a dot, X, line, or whichever you prefer on the CPU, let the heatsink naturally spread it as you squeeze it on top of the CPU and clamp it down.
