I just wanted to share my experience.
Was cooler fan at full speed?
What case and case fans do you have and their speeds?
How loud is our system?
I ask because I've tested many coolers with stock and high speed fans like NF-A12 iPPC 3000rpm an found the difference on a high heat CPU was 8-10c, which is niice .. but the noise level to get the 8-10c better cooling was 4-8 times louder, which to me was way too loud, so I run fans at lower speed and lower the overclock 200-400MHz and ran 3.8-4.0GHz instead of 4.2GHz. I didn't notice any difference in performance, even on long encoding sessions it was only a few minutes in an hour or so of encoding. But then I don't like a lot of noise.
