just as a heads up, HDT coolers like your S1283 will benefit with better temps if you put a thin line down each of the heatpipes, instead of spreading the paste on the CPU.

the way HDT coolers are designed, any excess TIM will go into the cracks between the heatpipes and the aluminium base. this ensures that only the necessary amount of TIM is used on the pipes, therefore getting better temps (remember less is more in most cases with TIM!)

hope i enlightened you some
