If I use prime95 within the first 15 seconds it is at 80c and keeps rising.
Maybe your old AS5 (no pun intended) is acting as an insulator? Try new TIM. I use Tuniq TX-2 and would recommend you get Tuniq TX-3. I've had nothing but great experience with it.

It's very possible. I will definitely try some new TIM. Thanks for the recommendation.

I have been reading some posts about cpu cooling and TIM and I noticed there is a specific amount you want on there. What are the negatives of using to much?

TIM is used to cover the tiny air pockets that come between the heatsink and the CPU. It has a lower thermal conductance than the solid copper/aluminum block on your CPU cooler so putting too much will act as an insulator. Read up some guides on how to place it. I prefer using the small dot in the middle method. Some people prefer the small line across the middle, just preference really.

I left them out like that, because they glow in the black lights along with my video card and rear exhaust fan. Or else its too dark down there.
