What temps do you get with realbench stress test?
Also, it could be worth your time to take off the cooler and inspect the cold plate along with the mounting screws. If the base of the cooler is convex, then that could be a variable for high temps as it won't make as much contact as a flat one (fyi, mine is pretty flat). You also have the mounting hardware not being torqued in there good enough which can cause a loose fit. Paste tim does degrade over time, but not by much, and re-applying annually is fine.
