Usually Intel chips have a very uneven IHS so I would try if your cooler gets even warm while in full load. If it doesnt, your contact is bad. Reseat cooler and/or lap your CPU. Lapping Intel chips really pays off if you have a uneven IHS. My friend lapped his umm... some E43XX and got about 10C drop at load
