    tried real temp, same high temps, and airflow in the case is well optimised with plenty of fans pointing in the right direction all 120mm and at full rpms

    It still wouldn't hurt to re seat it, especially with temps being so wildly out. Also try using a blob or line of paste rather than spreading it. This will insure no air is present. If you do insist on spreading the paste, it would be useful to apply the heatsink in a different way. Lay one edge of the HSF on the CPU and then "roll the HSF onto the CPU in a similar way to how you'd apply a sticky label to avoid air bubbles.

    Personally I only spread TIM when applying to bare cores such as on GFX cards or Northbridges etc, where it's crucial that all the exposed surface has TIM on it.

    well the first time i installed the heatsink i put a small line across and applied it that way. then read up on other people who had this same heatsink how they installed it, such as having it lined up vertically and spreading the paste around first on the cpu using clingfilm. the temperatures dropped a few degrees when i installed the heatsink the second time.
