    If there is a gap between the core and the base of the sink, then you either have the sink on backwards (there is a lower area for the high spot on the socket) or you have a defective (or fake) cooler. There are any number of folks out there who will sell you a fake cooler, and with your statement of a Chinese only instruction manual, it makes me wonder. The instructions that I received with that particular cooler were in English as is the Thermaltake website. Look at the picture on this page and tell us whether this is the cooler you have. The only acceptable difference in appearance would be the addition of three-lug clipping mechanism.

    Btw I just bought Volcano 7+ and install it using artic silver, I thought I can get below 40, but the fact I only got 55 degrees in medium speed and 52 on high speed! I spend money about 60 AUD to only decrease the temp by 3-4 degrees from my original heatsink?

    I have 2 80mm intake in the front and 2 80mm exhaust at the back, below is the picture of my case:


    I tried to remove the heatsink and clean the core + the HSF and apply it using artic silver but the result still the same....
    The best I can get on medium speed is 51 degrees (when idling).

    Have you tried with the side panel off to see if all the fans are working? It shouldn't be that hot, but it takes time for the AS3 to cure also.
