I was going to give it one more shot tonight but I think I should just wait for another heatsink. I was thinking of getting Corsair's H70 but I'm sure anything would have better mounting than this Intel one.
Very useful link, thanks! That makes more sense to give it a light tint before dropping a small bead or line down the center.

USE A BB size.
It's even harder for people like myself who never eat their greens....the last time I ate peas I was like 4 and they looked a lot bigger to me back then lol
Thanks to all for tips on how much paste to use, I also thought I was using more than I needed to but my only explanation for my high temps was that I didn't have enough to cover what needs to be covered. I'll get a new heatsink and another bottle of AC5 then see where I'm at.
Just sucks I can't even at least test out this GTX 580 I got installed in the thing.....it's way too big to fit in my current PC!
